1. What are you waiting for?

    You have everything you need, right now, today, to do the work. So, work with what you have.

    I’m a writer. I have everything I need, right now, to write. Take away my computer? I’ll still write. I’ll use pen and paper. Take away my pen and paper, and I’ll use my fingernail to scrawl it into the soft bark of the nearest tree.

    Extreme? Perhaps. But I can tell you for certain that, when it is time to write, nothing will stop me from doing so.

    What about you?

    Are you an accountant? Do you work with spreadsheets? If your spreadsheet was taken away, would you find a ledger book? Would you build an abacus? Or would you stop in your tracks and wait for Excel or some other invention while others got busy on the work using what they had?

    Are you a graphic designer? So were the painters who told the story of the afterlife in the pyramids. So were the scribes that did illuminated bibles in the Middle Ages. So were the hippies who posted concert flyers in the Sixties. Will you wait for InDesign?

    They all had everything they needed. Right there. Then.

    Nothing is stopping you from doing the work. You have everything you need. Right now. Today. You always have.

    So, what are you waiting for?
