You won’t know till you try

Granted, it does seem obvious, but it bears repetition.

Let me explain. For every one person who tells you to focus on building a platform, there will be another who tells you to focus on your writing. For every one person who tells you to build that product you’ve been dreaming and refining in your head and on scraps of paper, excited yet nervous about what could be, there will be another who says that you need to go out and figure out what the market wants and then go build it.

There are gurus everywhere.

I say the best person to decide is you.

There’s also no shortage of opinions. But like a restaurant review, you can either jump in and go explore what your gut tells you or you can listen to the reviewer(s) and make a call based on what they say.

I say the best person to decide is you.
You’ve got tons of experience under your belt, which at times, you might not be able to articulate or speak to. But when the time is right, this experience will be there to guide you. Let it.

You’ve got one shot at this thing called life.
Why give it up because of what someone else said? You don’t always know their frame of reference or motivation.
Why give it up because someone else thinks something of you or is trying to steer you in a particular direction? Go in the direction of your dreams.
Why let this go? Waiting for that time for things to gel and come together in perfect harmony and you’re almost invited to come to the table? That time will never come.

Seize the day.
Seize the moment.
Seize the opportunity.
Do what in your heart you know to be true, and be true to who you are.

There’s a long journey ahead. It will be filled with joy and anguish even when you take the road you want to be on. Don’t let your dream die by the wayside.

Seize the day.
Seize the moment.
Seize the opportunity.
