Do it, then fix it as you go

“Too many people spend too much time trying to perfect something before they actually do it. Instead of waiting for perfection, run with what you go, and fix it along the way…”

Recently a friend of mine told me that many people are afraid to quit their jobs without a secure plan yet I did it without one. Does that make me brave or silly?

To be honest, I had been thinking about this and although there are days when I miss the security and routine of the 9am -10pm job, there are also days I embrace the new flexible life. It’s not easy to continue in a path which those close to you feel is difficult or different but once you take that step, try your best to make it work. However, perhaps it’s also important to do what you feel you need to do so you don’t regret.

Have you ever not done something and then regretted it later on?

Life and time don’t wait for us. We cannot turn back time and we cannot fast forward time. However, if we live to regret, that is going to stick with us for a long time.

What do you think? Do you live by what is convenient or do you believe in taking risks?

the one most people make, you will be the same as everyone else”
