The Perfect Time

We always hear about the perfect time.

We fear being too early, but also fear about being too late.

Whether we’re talking about when to arrive at a social gathering, when to invest in something, when we should launch something new, or whether or not to jump on a new opportunity, we’re always looking for the “Goldilocks” timing – not too early, not too late.

But the thing is that whether or not the timing was right is all determined by the outcome. And since we’re not clairvoyant, we won’t know whether or not we made the perfect timing until after the fact. 

So while it’s important to think about the timing and try to nail it, it might be even more important to not let timing be a place for us to hide from doing the work and making a decision.
