Start Today

You don’t need to go back in time to be awesome; you just have to start right now. Regretting that you didn’t start earlier is a great distraction from moving on your dream today, and the reality is that today is earlier than tomorrow.

― Jon Acuff, Start

I like inspirational stories, like the one I shared yesterday about Vincent Womack. But I have to be honest, sometimes stories are a way to distract me from the real pain and agony of starting something new. These distractions keep me from digging in and taking action and learning.  Starting something new is yucky and painful . People who are already further along the leadership process are not better than me or you, they are just further along and have their own set of challenges. The rewards and challenges create an ongoing journey.
