Creative Pep Talk #5: Being “Ready”

Pep Talk Logo

Do you feel like you have to be “ready” before you start something new? Are you even sure what “ready” would mean? I’m here this week to talk about why “ready” is mostly an illusion, and why you should start now instead of waiting for that illusion to magically become real.

I think ready is an illusion, and ready often is an excuse that we make up because we don’t feel confident about what we want to do—and we think we’re going to fail.
