Here's what happens if you listen to advice...
Nothing is going to happen if you just listen to advice.
Nothing will happen if you read that hundredth blog post about habits.
Or that podcast about becoming more productive.
Or when you read dozens of books about successful people's lives.
As a matter of fact nothing will happen when you read my stuff.
It's all a big fat waste of time. And yes, also my stuff. It's a waste of your time.
Time you could have used to create your own stuff.
Time you could have used to get going. To get started. And to get better.
But instead you've once again wasted your time reading and consuming.
Time you could have used to produce.
Here's the truth...
Nothing will ever happen if you don't start doing.
That's the most important part. That's the only thing that really matters. Everything else doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter how many books you've read. Or how many comments you've left on people's blogs. Or who you know.
The only thing that matters is to do stuff.
The only thing that matters is who knows about you. Who knows about you and your work.
And you don't need to read hundreds of books or blog posts to get going.
The only thing you need to do is to get started. To get over you fear.
And if you never get started, if you never get over your fear nothing will ever happen.
Reading and consuming stuff is the last thing that will get you there.
The only thing that will ever get you there is you. And no one else.
So get going. And then never ever stop again...
