The Most Important Thing I've Learned From Interviewing Successful Makers
If you're waiting, you're not making.
Don't wait for people to give you permission
Don't give yourself excuses to procrastinate
Don't wait for people to notice you
Don't wait for your inspiration to hit you
Don't wait for answers
Don't wait for tomorrow to come
Do these instead:
Do it first, seek forgiveness later
Follow up on deals; Make them happen
Make them notice you
Great products are borne out of 1000s of iterations
Create the answers yourself
Do your tasks today so you can get more done tomorrow
As Ryan Kulp puts it in one of his posts:
if you wait for the perfect moment to do something great, you never will. because life kinda sucks like that, she always makes you work for it
I did most of these today and crushed my tasks even though I started the day on really low energy – my sinus infection seemed to have came back.
Note: “If you're waiting, you're not making” was originally said to me by Andrew Kamphey who mentored me on my newsletter journey.
