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. I tend to think that, if there is a cliché, there is probably some truth behind it. “There’s never a perfect time to have a baby”, this is another phrase commonly used that hits on the same issue. 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.

How come so many of the attendees at the 1927 Solvay Conference went on to win the Nobel Prize in physics? It seems like we had tons of genius graphic designers working in the 1960s, then, somehow, th […]Seth Godin
- In search of the obvious answer December 8, 2013The obvious answer to your problem isn't obvious yet, but once someone finds it, it will be.That's the way obvious answers work. They're not obvious because they're easy to find, they're obvious because, in fact, there's an answer. Most problems don't have obvious answers, which is why you should demote them from the list o […]Seth Godin
