New Weekly Mantra - Ready or not

Some people make decisions conditionally.

If X happens, I will do Y, or I can't do A because of B, C, D and E.

While this blog post isn't a formulaic math test, sometimes the waiting until we are ready for something may never be so. I have many areas of my life that I condition decisions upon based on the arbitrary idea that I'll know when I become "ready." It's not like one day you wake up and a stamp appears on your forehead, smudged and bright green declaring the word, START. Sometimes you have to make a move before.

Below is this week's Not A Model mantra. Ready, set...

"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
