How often have you put off doing something uncomfortable and told yourself the timing’s just not right?
The timing will be better when, if, then, because, after.
So you wait. And you wait. And you wait.
Did you do what you said you were going to when you got more money, more time, more resources, more stability? More often than not, you probably didn’t.
Sometimes, bad timing is a legitimate issue. But, equally if not far more often, it’s not. Instead, it’s an excuse for avoiding the uncertainty of doing something new. It’s not based on sound analysis and intelligent exploration, but rather fear and avoidance. Driven largely by the desire to not have to wade from a place of certainty back into the uncertain abyss, even when that place of unknowing is the gateway to stunning possibility.
That’s what today’s Good Life Project Riff is all about.
