start button“What are you waiting on?”

I heard this question so many times over the last few years that I seriously thought about buying a t-shirt with my answer on it so people would leave me alone.

Being a man of quick wit and infinite charm (long term dream I figured I could force upon you), I would often fire back at the people who would ask me this question a simple response.

“You. I’m waiting on you to get started.”

“I don’t know what I’m good at.”
“We are different because you know what you are suppose to do.”
“I really don’t have a clue where my passions are.”
“I don’t know where to begin.”
“I’m going to start, tomorrow.”
“I’m waiting on the right opportunity.”
“Somehow, someway, someday, I am going to go for it.”
