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.

If we are ever going to move towards our goals, we need to grasp the nettle. 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.

This sort of contract has evolved into a battle […]Seth Godin
- Taking the plunge October 22, 2014Maybe that's the problem. Perhaps it's better to commit to wading instead. Ship, sure. Not the giant life-changing, risk-it-all-venture, but the small. When you do a small thing, when you finish it, polish it, put it into the world, you've made something. You've committed and you've finished. And then you can do it again, but louder. […]Seth Godin
