The great philosopher, Plato, once said, “The beginning is the most important part of the work.” How can you accomplish great things if you never get started?
Reid Hoffman, founder of Linkedin said, “If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late.” These quotes by incredibly wise men all tell us the same thing.
Don’t wait for the “right time”. Start NOW.
Most people tend to delay starting anything, whether it is a business, hobby, diet, relationship, etc. Everyone seems to be afraid of change or the unknown.
If you’re wanting to start a business, you might think you have to read every book, take every course and get a master’s degree in business management first.
If you’re trying to lose weight, you might think you need to finish all the unhealthy food in your pantry first, read about all the diet choices, watch hundreds of workout videos on Youtube or go shopping for the perfect workout clothes first.
This is not the right way of thinking. Plato, Reid Hoffman and many others who have become successful know this. You just have to start because that is the hardest part.
Should you be educating yourself if you start a business? Yes. Should you be researching the effects of different foods on your body if you want to lose weight? Yes.
But, you do these things while going through the process after getting started. Many people spend too much time over-educating themselves without acting on what they learn.
Many people spend too much time getting ready to get ready or waiting for the perfect time. There will never be a perfect time. Perfection is impossible.
If Plato was here today, advising you, he would tell you to quit making excuses and start now. Until you start, no progress will be made. This reminds me of how professional athletes might say, “You miss every shot you don’t take.”
Massive action is the key to progress. You have to take it or you will stay in limbo the rest of your life, waiting to reach your goals. It’s hard to reach goals when you don’t do anything to reach them though, isn’t it?
Getting the ball rolling is the hardest part. Once you do that, you can build momentum through constant action, education and experience. Pretty soon you will have the “snowball effect”.

Toddlers don’t learn to walk by reading a manual, but by trying and correcting course along the way. If you want more in life, you have to go out there and take it.
When Plato said, “The beginning is the most important part of the work,” he was telling us to just start laying that foundation now. You can build momentum after that.
