That business idea, that initiative, that book, that design, that project, that product, that blog, that business and that training that you’ve been waiting to do has expiry date. The earlier you set at it, the better.
After waking up to the dream, desire or need or next step, the next critical questions are when to start, what to start with and how to start.
For the question of when to start ~ my only option is NOW! In your hesitation, competition is been created. You might think an idea is your special baby and you’re the only channel and while you’re still thinking and brooding, someone down the road either comes up with a similar idea or more often than not, a superior version of your idea. Then your position will be the second place hoping you’ll make effort to incorporate a unique selling point (USP). Time is of essence and it cannot be replaced.
The question of what to start with has been a pertinent question to be answered by anyone who has milestones to be covered. It’s always cheaper to start with what you have, no matter how large an idea is in the initial, there are smaller steps to be taken in the immediate. Identify resources that are from within you and those that are external. If financial resources are readily available, act like it’s scarce, streamline expenses and needs and in situation that financial resources are scarce
The question of how to start remains the critical one dependent solely on the ideator, a function of individuals attitude, drive, inclination, energy levels and etc. Some people start their dream path anyhow, hoping that the t’s will be crossed and the i’s will ve dotted along the line; some folks prefer to have everything spick and span, ordered and well arranged before starting out. Know yourself and stay active in the area of your strength. Start with what you have, your time, intellect, your skills, your vehicle, your space and etc. Navigate your path from known points to unknown points. The challenges on the known points prepare you for the next level of unknown points. Start with family and friends as your first set of clients. Start with a sustainable level of standard.
