It’s apparently the key to success according to some of my entrepreneurial friends. I must admit; they’ve got a point. You can ALWAYS find a (good enough) reason why not to do something or even try to do it. One is then bound to sit and stay put at exactly the same place where he or she sat and stayed already for ages. If you want to (over)dramatize things, you can even say that one could also grow old and die at that same, good old, comfy spot. I don’t know about you, but the thought of it creeps me out.
So I decided to give it a try and make it my motto. At least for the coming year. I shouldn’t fool myself, I’ve always been a thinker, but there’s a substantial difference between thinking and overthinking.
The economist within me urges for a clear strategy followed by a quickly drafted SWOT analysis, if possible with a more in-depth risk analysis and needless to say a positive ROI statement. Oh, and let’s not forget about the short- and long term goals where results can be tracked and measured..
Jesus Christ, have I always been like this?!
If things go wrong, then fuck it, you’ll survive, learn from it and get stronger in the end, right? I don’t want to become one of those moms whose son can’t play outside because she’ll be afraid that he might fall, break his leg, have to go to the hospital, where the doctor might discover that an extremely rare bug bit him along the way and he’ll never be able to play again in his own backyard because he became allergic to grass.. I’m just saying, it COULD really happen… Not that I’m planning to have any kids, (at least not in the near future), but if the time would come, I want my kid to be a doer.
So I’m going to be a doer myself. Starting with an official Bucket list. But what do I want to do? Hmm I’ll have to think about that…
