You’re not Goldilocks

Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.
– Napoleon Hill

I’m sure you’re familiar with the tale of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  This porridge is too hot.  This porridge is too cold This porridge is just right. This bed is too hard. This bed is too soft. This bed is just right.  If you’re thinking your Goldilocks, and you’re waiting for the time to be just right, I’ve you're not goldilocksgot a news flash for you.  You’re not Goldilocks, and the time is never going to be just right.  So if you’ve got something that you want to do, just do it.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you shouldn’t have a plan.  You need a plan; plans are important.  But you don’t want to get so caught up and committed to your plan that you never start.  It happens, and it happens a lot.  Think about dieting.  Have you ever caught yourself saying you’ll start your new diet on Monday?  Monday’s fine but what’s wrong with right now?  Just start already.  You’re not Goldilocks and it’s never ever going to be just right.

It’s the same with any goal you put in place.  Too often, you get so caught up in waiting for the perfect time to start something new, that we forget to start. Don’t lose sight of your goals by getting lost in the details.  Set the goal, develop a plan, and most important, don’t forget to start.  Remember, you’re not Goldilocks, the time is never ever going to be just right.
