Fail, fail, fail, fail, succeed

The Right Moment

This quote was one of the things that helped motivate me to start this blog. Seth is big on self-expression as a way to give of oneself in order to contribute something unique to the world. I’m not sure I’m really doing that, but he at least inspired me to try.

It’s worth re-reading whenever you are having trouble getting started with something.

You might be waiting for things to settle down. For the kids to be old enough, for work to calm down, for the economy to recover, for the weather to cooperate, for your bad back to let up just a little…
The thing is, people who make a difference never wait for just the right time. They know that it will never arrive.
Instead, they make their ruckus when they are short of sleep, out of money, hungry, in the middle of a domestic mess and during a blizzard. Whenever.
As long as whenever is now
