As many of you know, I haven't written a post in a while. I apologize.

Rather than make excuses for my inaction, I would like to challenge you to do something. Anything. In the next 30 days, start something or start working toward something.

It starts with an assumption.

  • If I start learning how to trade stocks, maybe I can supplement my income in the future.
  • If I start a blog, maybe I can publish a book in the future.
  • If I start volunteering, maybe I'll meet some new people that can help me find a job.

Whatever it is, get started.

There is no better time than now.

Take the excuses off the table. Most things worth doing don't require a whole lot of actual time or money. We, humans, tend to use those things as excuses.

The legend has it that took Da Vinci 16 years to start, pause and ultimately finish the Mona Lisa. So, find your Mona Lisa, and get started painting it.

And, if you don't hear from me, assume that I am working on things I care about more than blogging at the moment.

Over the past 6-7 weeks, this lecture has motivated me. I hope it
has the same effect on you.
