I'll start tomorrow

Are you waiting for the perfect conditions to start on your goal? Tomorrow morning, when you’re fresh and flaw-free? Next Monday, with the energy of a new week? Next year, when whatever circumstance will make things easier?

I have news for you. Tomorrow morning, next Monday, next year: you’ll still be you.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be a doctor. My parents had other plans, and I studied business administration. I did cool stuff and was good at it, but deep down I was miserable. I KNEW that as a doctor I wouldn’t have all the stress, procrastination, doubts about my contribution, my purpose, my worth.

Then 7 years ago, I had the opportunity to not work for a year. I told myself: whatever you don’t do this year, you have to stop complaining about. I wasn’t even googling how to be a doctor, so I knew something was up.

And it hit me: had I become a doctor, I would still be me! I’d be a pediatrician thinking I’d contribute so much better if I were an oncologist. As a surgeon, I wouldn’t procrastinate. I’d have no doubt as a cardiologist 😉

I’m me. Perfectly imperfect. Tomorrow, next Monday; and right now.

There’s no perfect circumstance, ever. There’s only now, you’re only you, AND you can achieve awesome stuff.

No bad horses, only untrained riders 🐴
