Start Before You Are Ready. Stop Preparing. Start Doing.

Preparation.   That’s it.   That’s the trap. 

Rather than write a paragraph, you buy a beautiful leather-bound notebook.   Rather than schedule a meeting with the team to reset the project, you order a book about team leadership from Amazon.  Rather than write the first three slides of the presentation, you spend an hour checking out design templates.

There is nothing wrong with a preparation.   But it makes you feel like you are making progress.   Until you start, you are not.

Write on a legal pad, not a leather-bound book.  Send the email scheduling the meeting. Write the first three slides on a blank template – make it look pretty later.

Start before you’re ready.  (* this advice originally from Iris)
