Here’s the problem with carefully considering your options. No amount of thinking or research can ever ensure an outcome.
We play this story in our minds, that we’re searching for answers and looking for the right path. But what are we really doing? Thinking can’t take you very far without action.
Some people take a more action-oriented approach. Instead of waiting to feel 100% certain about a decision, they take action sooner, realizing that taking action is the only way to know for sure. Instead of trying to arrive at the perfect mental answer, these people say “let’s try it and see what happens!”
While you weigh your options, someone else is already taking action. Action isn’t always the right answer, but most of us could use more doing and less thinking.
Any project or system that involves people, no matter how well-intentioned, eventually loses luster once the initial excitement and momentum wears off. Everything becomes a job after long enough, no matter how infatuated you were in the beginning.
Every creative person, every entrepreneur and everyone who tries something new needs to realize and accept this. Your work is going to suck in the beginning.

Motivation is a funny thing. We can feel sluggish, depressed, tired and unmotivated towards the work we *know* we want/need to get done.
I read last week that a record number of people are leaving their jobs. They’re leaving because we’re in a tight labor market right now, and finding a better job is easy.
Tell me if this sounds familiar. You start working on a new task, which requires you to do some research or look something up.
