At some point, you’ve gathered enough information.
You’ve taken in enough advice. You’ve listened to enough audiobooks. You’ve read enough books. You’ve gotten all the inspiration you can get. You know the instructions by heart.
At some point – preferably NOW – it’s time to sit your ass down.
Back when I was recording CDs, I’d take a hiatus from other people’s music. I’d spend weeks in a cave with my producer listening only to the musicians I’d hired (as they shone all over my songs).
When I create a program (like Uplevel Your Life, or Uplevel Your Business), I turn away from my giant pile of books to read, I set aside my iPod with all its inspirational speakers, writers, coaches (of the life and business variety), experts, and gurus…
…and I freakin’.
There is no way – and believe me I’ve tried – to know in advance if what I make is gonna be any good. Or if it’s gonna sell. Or if it’s gonna “work.” No amount of incoming information is going to answer that mystery. No amount of trying to inhale one more shred of inspiration is going to make it any easier to put your heart and soul out there.
But one thing’s for sure:
If you spend all your time gathering (and wondering), you’ll never really know, will you?
You’ve gathered all you need to gather. You’ve inhaled all you need to inhale.
Now, start making.
