If you’re waiting for the right time, you’re already too late. If starting your goal is dependent on something or someone then you are probably going to have a hard time and may never start it.
Sometimes this waiting can be a symptom of a deeper problem.
Often, procrastination is a cover for fear. Putting something off is a great way to avoid situations that are scary or unknown. Procrastination also allows us to avoid the ramifications of our actions. If this is something yet to be done, then we don’t have to worry about what happens if we are wrong, or worse, what happens if we’re right.
Most people will go out of their way to avoid change. Keep in mind that even positive change is change. Procrastination allows us to pretend that we will instigate change eventually.
Procrastination is quitting without the commitment. Guess what? NOW is the only appropriate time to begin the change. NOW is the only available time to break free of the line that keeps you from achieving that goal.
Waiting for the perfect time is like waiting to win the lottery to start paying bills. It’s not likely to happen, and in the meantime, the creditors are calling.
Start where you are. Start now. Maybe you can’t make sweeping changes with the resources you have at hand, but true change comes in small steps.
There’s no more waiting. Start.
