Saturday Night Live producer, Lorne Michaels, makes an important point about being prepared: “We don’t go on (the air) because we’re ready. We go on because it’s 11:30.”
It’s now or never.
Perfectionists and procrastinators want to stop the clock, delay, or push deadlines out. It’s rarely more time however, that makes something perfect. Its how we use the time we have that determines how perfect we are.
Something can always go wrong. When systems allow for us to use our instincts and intuition we are released to levels of excellence no amount of “check the box” preparation can accomplish. Trust yourself: You’ve spent a life time preparing for this moment.
What action are you ready to model?
It’s 11:30 p.m.
Get on with your greatness.
