Chances are there’s something in your life that you’d like to do, but you’ve just never gotten around to it. You’re breaking Rule Number 3, and you’re waiting to start later. It happens to all of us; we don’t necessarily know how to make it happen, and since no one else around us is doing it, we feel like we need to make sure it’s okay that we move forward. We feel that we need to ask permission.
We don’t. Do you want to try a new hobby, like woodworking? Do you want to get a different job? Do you want to start exercising and eating better? Guess what… You can. You don’t have to wait for someone to tell you that you’re allowed to do these things. You can just start.
Don’t know what you’re doing? That’s okay, because most people never do, especially not when they’re starting something new. The great thing is we live in a time when more information is readily available than ever before. You probably have a device in your pocket right now that can access 90% of the world’s information, and you’re going to tell me that you don’t know how to start composting, building a table, or training for a marathon? Just get started.
Google and Youtube won’t make you an expert, but they’ll get you started. If and when you need to find an expert to give some guidance, Google will help you do that too. It’s a big world, but if you’ve got a library and an internet connection, you can start to explore it. And you should do that today.
So don’t ask permission. You don’t need it. Just get started.
