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.

Power, of course, is the first problem. […]Seth Godin
- Notes, not received July 29, 2015An expected apology rarely makes things better. But an expected apology that never arrives can make things worse. An expected thank you note rarely satifies. But an expected thank you that never arrives can make things worse. On the other hand, the unexpected praise or apology, the one that comes out of the blue, can change everything. It's easier than […]Seth Godin
