This quote, from the Marketing expert Kevin Nations, encapsulates why so many people hold themselves back from achieving their ambitions. Does it resonate with you? It certainly does with me! We can focus so much time and effort on trying to make the ‘right’ decisions that we can fall into the trap of failing to take any actions at all.

In almost all cases, any decision is the right decision, and what we encounter after making that decision will give clarity on the next steps that need to be taken.

"It's complicated," we say, even when it isn […]Seth Godin
- Wishing vs. doing September 29, 2014By giving people more ways to speak up and more tools to take action, we keep decreasing the gap between what we wish for and what we can do about it. If you're not willing to do anything about it, best not to waste the energy wishing about it.Seth Godin
