Hello everyone!
Just wanted to connect with you and share this great post by my friend Craig Jarrow from Time Management Ninja. I am neck deep in the early development phase of LeapZone’s newest and most comprehensive product yet. A kick-butt 8 Week Online Program for small business owners called “Build To Rock – Position it right. Deliver it right. Get paid right”. I have to admit, Craig’s post could not have come at a better time. How many times do you tell yourself that you’re not ready…the timing is not right, the money is not quite there yet, the kids are too young, etc…

Craig mentions a line from the movie “Ender’s Game” when Harrison Ford’s character is defending Ender’s readiness for the coming mission. Responding to a statement that Ender is not ready, he says:

“You’re never ready. You go when you’re ready enough.” 

Here’s the rest of Craig’s post:
Now, while you probably aren’t preparing to fight an army of aliens, there is still much truth in this simple statement. Here is the thing. You’re Never Ready. Are you holding yourself back, telling yourself and others that you aren’t ready?

What are you not ready to do?
• to start a business
• to write your book
• to get in shape
• to work on your big goal
• to learn a new skill
• to begin a job search
• to have a new relationship
• to take action on your dreams

The truth is… you may not be ready. However, make sure you aren’t waiting for a time that will never come.

Craig is right. It is important to make sure you go when you are ready enough….and for me…ready enough is now. Do I have doubts? You bet I do. Do I fear investing 6 months of my life and thousands of dollars to have a major let down? I would be lying if I said that the thought had not crossed my mind…but…you know what? I am a gutsy gal and I know that with No Guts…comes No Glory.

So…am I ready? Nope. Am I ready enough? I say yes…and we’ll see…all at the same time. There are a million things to learn, write, do, record, figure out, tweak, re-do, re-learn, re-record…but…I am doing it and I am proud of myself .

Thanks to everyone for your encouragement. It means a lot to me.
