Green light in Madrid

It’s a common question, “When is the best time to take action?”

My response would be, “right now!”

Too many times we wait around for the right time, the right economic conditions, the right people to give us their tacit approval, the right whatever half-baked excuse we use to procrastinate and not take action.

If you want to be successful in any area of life, assume that the light’s always green.

Assume a posture for action and stop sitting around waiting for the right conditions.

Have you ever had a great business idea, only to read that someone else has run with it while you were waiting for the right time? 

Don’t let it happen again.

I’m not saying to quit your job this week or be irresponsible.  

I’m suggesting that you start taking action now.  Start setting small goals and get cracking on achieving them.

When it comes to being a better spouse, parent, leader, innovator, contributor to society, public speaker, christian or student, the light’s always green.  There’s always something that you can do that you don’t need permission for.

You can sit around complaining about your circumstances or you can acknowledge that you probably have the resources at your disposal to start building momentum immediately.

What are you waiting for?

Stop waiting for the stars to align and for the perfect set of circumstances to appear.  Life doesn’t work like that and it’s too short to sit around watching everyone else pass you by.

The light’s green.


What are you going to do first?
