Motivation Monday

"It's a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you're ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any." - Hugh Laurie

Yeah this guy said it... Yep, Dr. House said it. And this quote is now one of my favorites. Many people, especially writers, are always waiting for that perfect moment to do something. They want to be 110% ready before they quit a job, quit a relationship or begin writing the book that's been stirring in their heart for decades. What most people mean when they say they want to be ready is that they want to be certain. Well, there is no certainty. You cannot be certain that you will write the perfect book. There's no certainty that you will publish what you do write. What IS certain is that, if you don't start writing now, you will wake up tomorrow still waiting to be ready. So go do the thing you really, really, really want to do. And do it now!
