Timing is everything. Only if, the 'perfect time' is not your 'perfect excuse' not to move into action- a.k.a. procrastination.
What happens when you stop waiting for the right time and take action now?
While we too often say, "I am waiting for the right time..." the right time to start a new career, to start eating healthy, to start a new workout regime, or to reach out to that person you have been thinking about. What we really are saying is, "I have not made this a priority in my life."
The Fact that Matters:
I often set myself straight when I am in this situation by reminding myself of one important fact: You make time for what you want to make time for. It is that simple.
You will never see results if you do not start. Decide the one thing you will begin now that will move the needle towards accomplishing your goal. The size of the action is not essential, it is the progress that you want to keep your focus on.
Take action: What is one step you will take now towards your goal?
Make Changes Later
Now that you have started, you will have the information you need to make a decision if a change is necessary. Should this first step be enough? What comes next? Should this step be more significant?
Do not worry about altering your plan. Iterations are to be expected.
By merely starting, you will start to clearly see what your next step will be.
