So many of us would have a very common and specific question in our head… “The idea is not yet mature, should I wait till it is to start or should I just Start?”
Well from the title of this article, you SHOULD Start… But only if you are planning to give your idea enough effort to succeed. You See Jumping without wings or parachute is the same as the intention to Suicide, but having all the tools and materials you need to fly is still an attempt to fly.
How many times, you thought of an idea, and even decided that when “you have time” you will work on it, and then years later, you hear about it being built and promoted and made that person millions of dollars while you think that you would’ve done it better? my dear friend Wessam Zeidan always used to tell me.. “Your Idea is now Worth 20$, and that’s it will all be worth if you don’t execute it”
I would highlight to you the following: do you start typing your words and then you do a spell check, or you start looking up each of your words in the dictionary before you start typing? they both lead to the same outcome don’t they?
It’s almost the same when you are starting a project or you want to realize an idea, or even when you are taking a decision. You first need to have a vision of what you want to achieve, and then try to look up what you need to make this happen, and then START… and don’t worry, You Will work out the details as you go…
Few days ago, the weather in Dubai was very sandy you can almost not see the buildings from the sand storm and driving was not very easy, but people didn’t need to see the entire road, they just need to see 50 meters before them, and accordingly they would take the decisions where to turn, when to stop, when to speed up and when to slow down.
It’s pretty much like Life, Put your goals in front of you, and start, and then start working out the details as you go. And just like the Highway of Dubai, you can always park in a gas station, refuel, have coffee and get some goodies to help you out in your way.
Jump, and you will find out how to unfold your wings as you fall.
Enjoy your Week!
