I need a publisher to publish my book.
I need an investor to invest in my idea.
I need a degree to get a job.
I need experience to start a company.
Look. All of these things are nice to have.
But they are not a necessity in today's world anymore.
As a matter of fact many of these things might even work against you.
Waiting for that publisher to choose you will cost you a hell lot of time.
The same holds true for that investor, that degree or that work experience.
You'll be spending a hell lot of time waiting for people to choose you.
Time you could have spent working on and improving that idea.
Time you could have spent shipping your work and getting feedback.
Time you could have spent creating your art and getting better at your craft.
So don't waste any more time waiting.
Because no one will be waiting for you...
