Hopefully you’ve had a more productive day than I have. I knew exactly what I had to do today for my startup, and yet I found all sorts of things to do instead.
I’ve come to the opinion most of the time most people know exactly what they should be doing to finish their software, build their business, make something, love somebody. But it’s as scary as walking across a room full of hissing, crawling snakes, and it’s so easy to turn back again and again.
I don’t have any 12 step plans or five bullet point posts to make it any easier to make that walk. But there is some comfort knowing anybody who wants to create has to make that walk every time, and everybody “important” you’ve ever heard of made that damn walk ahead of you.
What’s more, if you can see how what you are trying to do actually makes this world even a minutely better place, I think you can levitate at least some of the time right over those snakes.
Give it a try.
