James Clear quoted writer Audre Lorde on facing our challenges:
“Sometimes we are blessed with being able to choose the time, and the arena, and the manner of our revolution, but more usually we must do battle where we are standing.”
In your coaching or therapy business this means not waiting for those elusive last pieces to your jigsaw.
Not “I’ll get started when…” – because if it’s not right now, then it probably never will be.
And those metaphorical ducks: don’t they always start to wander off, just when it looks like you might finally have them in a row?
You’re far more likely to succeed if you focus on three things already in your orbit right now:
1: Your current skills
2: The clients nearest to you
3: The solutions you’ve used in the past
Then just go out and start conversations.
Waiting for the stars to align could take way more time than you have left.
