“You are more prepared than you realize. You probably aren’t ready, and you can’t be ready, not if you’re doing something worthwhile.
Because we always do our best work and take our turn before we’re ready.”
As someone who had been getting ready to get ready to get ready, before I had my epiphany and actually committed to blogging and stopped procrastinating, boy do these words by Seth Godin ring true.
According to Dictionary.com, being ready means “completely prepared or in fit condition for immediate action or use,” or according to Merriam Webster, “prepared mentally or physically for some experience or action.”
So, what does it take to be ready? Well, in my experience, always more than I have at the moment. Hence a great reason to procrastinate, and wait until that magic moment of readiness.
The trouble is, we’re probably never going to feel really ready when it comes to the big things in life….. there is always more to learn, more confidence to feel. And if we’re lucky, we find ourselves in the position where suddenly it’s obvious it’s our turn and it’s our time and it’s time to jump. So then, what do we do?
Back down the mountain, retreat, find so many good reasons why we’re just not ready?
Because the Universe seems to have its own timing, ever notice that?
So, are you ready to take your turn, brave reader?
