“…In Order To Learn To Do It.”

“I am always doing that which I can not, in order that I may learn how to do it.” – Van Gogh

Most people I know don’t actually like being beginners.

I can’t tell you the amount of times I have heard clients and friends say something like, “I’ve always wanted to learn how to play guitar (or speak another language, or sail, or run a marathon.)” And I always ask, have you tried? Have you taken lessons? Read a book?

The truth is there is a huge difference between wanting something and fantasizing about it.

When we want something  we should feel compelled to take some action to achieve it. When we fantasize we may think it is something I want, but it is really just a day dream, or a lie to feel more interesting.

If you really want something don’t wait to find time, make time.
