Some beats none.
This has become a staple phrase in my life since reading Start: Punch Fear in the Face, Escape Average and Do Work that Matters. (Fantastic read, by the way.) Last week, I ignored this little battle cry. I let the fear of the unknown and the feeling of inability to do something perfectly keep me from moving forward.
We must stop getting caught up in trying to have it all together before beginning something. Refuse the need to have the ending set in stone at the beginning of your journey. Avoid the trap of feeling like what you’re doing has to be perfect. No one and nothing is perfect.
The questions we’re asking and things we’re exploring are intricate, and will sometimes lead to big, even messy, changes. Don’t be overwhelmed. Instead, let these things roll around in your mind. Be thankful for what you have, and practice framing things in light of how they could become greater- in your own life or someone else’s.
So today, remember, some beats none. What is your ‘some’ today?
Mine is getting back in the groove of writing for Greater.
