“Life is a story, if you wouldn’t read the one you’re telling, write a different ending.” — Jonathan Fields
I went to the World Domination Summit last weekend. (1) And what I heard were a lot of great stories about how people do work:
I heard some people saying: Start! You have all you need to start right now!
I heard some people saying: Wait! Give yourself time to recover, to ripen, to grow.
I heard some people saying: Just tell me the secret thing that successful people do and I’l do it! Tell me! (There were, admittedly, a lot of these.)
And at the end of the weekend, here’s what I really heard: As long as you make time to listen, and make time for your community, you’re going to do just fine. The work follows people who are patient, persistent, and surround themselves with great people.
There is no right time for the work you want to do — just your time.
So get ready. Get going.
And get yours.
Ultimately, it’ll be there — something remarkable, something amazing — when you’re ready to put in the work.
