Is there something that you’d like to do, but you’ve just never gotten around to it? A project or goal that you’d like to achieve, but just haven’t started yet? You know that you’re breaking Rule Number 3, and you’re waiting to start later, but you’re not sure why. It happens to all of us; we don’t necessarily know how to make it happen, no one else around us is doing it, and we don’t know how to get the ball rolling, we aren’t sure if you’re supposed to proceed. Sometimes we feel like we need to ask permission.
Do you want to try a new hobby or try to get a different job? Would you like to start exercising and eating better? Are you eager to start hiking on the weekend and work up to your first backpacking trip? Guess what; you can. You don’t have to wait for someone to tell you that you’re allowed to do these things. Just start.
You don’t need permission.
Don’t know what you’re doing? That’s okay, most people never do, especially not when they’re starting something new. Don’t sweat it; 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? Don’t wait for permission. Just start.
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 remember Rule #75: You don’t need permission.
Just go do your thing.
