“We have nowhere else to go… this is all we have.” – Margaret Mead, Born Dec. 16, 1901.
What are you waiting for? Some new software to be released? A new laptop to work on? One more big client to fund your escape? A perfect idea to put your passion into? Another golden once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change your life?
We are here.
It's this moment.
This is the place.
Don't go looking for tools or doing more research or analyzing every damn thing. Set all that aside.
Take an action. Publish a post. Make an offer. Pitch a product or service you really want to sell. It will be imperfect. Incomplete. Ugly. That's okay.
What's important is to treat this moment right now as though you're in a survival situation and what you have at hand is literally all there is to work with.
No excuses. No delay. No procrastination. Take a forward action right now. Don't sleep on it. Don't make a pot of coffee. Don't take a walk.
Sit your ass down and do the first step. And then the next. Do every step you can do right now before getting up or logging off or leaving the place you are right now.
You'll be amazed how much you can do with so little.
When you make a practiced habit of it, you become proficient at it.
Soon your audience of fans and followers and buyers all notice your effortless minimalist approach to drop-dead awesome. They wonder how you do it without a mountain of prep and cutting edge tools and you must be some kind of mutant genius.
But no. It's a habit you develop of doing what you can, right now.
Because this place is all there is. What you have is what you have and if it's not enough to get started, nothing will change it in your favor. Because YOU are not in the right place.
