Don't wait for the milestone start

I'll start it on Monday.I'll write everyday starting next year. I'll start the project on the 1st of the month.

I'm guilty of employing this delay tactic a million times.

But, despite its rational roots, that is all that it is: a delay tactic. A way to feel good about your ambitions while procrastinating and not taking any action.

The truth is you should start. Take the creative energy you're putting into fantasizing about the "perfect" start in the future and turn it into something concrete right now.

Your future self will thank you.
