I love Napoleon Hill's famous quote: "Don't wait. The time will never be just right." I look at my life now and I often wonder where I would be if I just waited for things to happen. What if I kept my idea for a round diaper changing pad - the patemm pad - to myself and never pursued to bring my idea from inception to market? Then, parents across the globe would have not enjoyed this essential baby item that I invented over 10+ years ago. What if I didn't start my consulting business (www.gcollaborative.com)? My dream of helping other aspiring entrepreneurs grow and promote their businesses would have not come to fruition.
Admittedly, my timing on things wasn't always perfect but everything seemed to work out just fine. Yes, I have procrastinated many times before but I also have taken lot of chances - some good, some bad! Life it too short to sit around and wait for that perfect moment. You have to take chances. Some opportunities in life may never come again and in the end we only regret the chances we didn't take, right? Taking chances is what makes life interesting and exciting. Even if it doesn't work out - you tried. Learn from it and move on. Down the road, you don't want to say to yourself: "I should have or I could have..."
If you see an opportunity, grab it and go for it! If you don't take a chance, how will you ever know?
