If you don’t start, you will fail.

Another summer hiatus is coming to a close. I had been mulling over ideas for what to post when I came upon Seth Godin’s recent blog entry about stalling. It was as if he was staring right at me saying, “Write. Anything. Just do it.”. So here I am, sharing Seth Godin’s wisdom.

“If you don’t start, you can’t fail.”
It sounds ridiculous when you say it that way. But of course, it is ridiculous.

It’s (quite possibly) the reason you’re stalling.
On the other hand, there’s no doubt that, “If you don’t start, you will fail.” Not starting and failing lead to precisely the same outcome, with different names.

 And there you have it. I’m coming back from my break slowly but surely, because if I don’t start, I will indeed fail.
