When You’re Ready
How will you know when you’re ready?
Ready to speak up… ready to start your project… ready to decide… ready to engage deeply with the people around you.
I find myself waiting for a comfort level, or for a break in the conversation/noise that is so long and so awkward that it practically begs me to make my move. I tend to feel ready after it’s too late, when I feel the sting of regret that comes with having missed the opportunity. Then I’m scrambling and grasping to bring it back thinking, this time I’ll act. This time I won’t wait… won’t let it pass.
The time to go for it is likely before you feel ready.
I’m not saying I know exactly what it should look like or feel like when you’re ready, but I am saying that I wouldn’t wait around for the feeling.
