Doodle Card #262 – Go For The Perfect Time


Go for the perfect time.


My worst mistake in my life is not to start my own business much earlier.

When I was a kid, I had a dream of running my business. This dream became much bigger when my father failed in his business and gave up on his entrepreneurial endeavor. I thought I was going to make my business successful and save my family — but it was just a dream. I didn’t take any practical action for decades since then.

Years later, I got trapped into slavery of a high-paying job. But I still believed that the perfect time to start my business would come, and didn’t take action at all — even a small one. I finally noticed that the perfect time I had waited for didn’t exist, only after I lost my physical and mental health.

The perfect time will never come even if we desperately wait for; It’s something we create ourselves by taking small steps toward it. Or probably, it doesn’t even matter whether there is the perfect time for you or not; just start moving toward your destination. You still might worry that you would regret later that it was NOT the perfect time — but it won’t happen unless you give up on what you started.

Don’t wait for the perfect time. Even if you are still young, you’ll soon turn 30, 40, 50, or 60. Stand up, take action, and create it yourself. Never give up. Never live the rest of your life with regret.
