If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

Do it right.
That is what we need.

We know it.
We have been taught since day one at the kindergarten.
Or even before that.

But whenever you think about it, it invites you to a non-action.
Chances are that you end up saying something like this.

Well, I’m busy.
I don’t have time.
I don’t feel like it right now, but I can do that later.

It’s only a matter of minutes.
Or a matter of seconds.
Still, your subconscious guides you the other way.

You know you have to do it right.
And that’s what holds you back.

No worries.
You are not alone.
That’s what happens to anyone.

Let’s not expect a great solution.
Instead, let’s have a method.

Just a simple method will do to overcome your inaction.
It’s to say a line of words in a breath.

Like you plant a seed to the ground, seed a word into the soil that’s you.

For example, here’s one for today.

“If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?”

The legendary coach John wooden said this.
Don’t try to take it as a motto yet.
Don’t jump into trying something.

It will most likely result in not doing much because you still have the same problem.
You have not planted a seed for action yet.

In the background of your mind, your subconscious is telling you to think about getting a good result.
We have been practicing it too much.

Let it go.
Just say it、first.
Say it out loud.
That’s the action you take now.

Repeat it and again.
Believe it or not, it will soon sound like thoughtful advice.

It will turn into wisdom if you vocalize it.
A tiny seed will sprout.

Once you have planted the seed, you can think about it a little.
If you do something now, you can do it over.

Sounds too easy?
What does it really mean?

It’s much more profound than you might think.

If you do it, there will be another chance.
If you don’t, there will never be any chance, for that matter.

That’s significant.
It doesn’t matter how well you do it.
What matters is you take action.

The fact that you did something is so powerful.
It will keep coming back to you.
And you can make it better.

You are nurturing the seeds you sow.
You will realize your action afterward.
You will not realize it before you do.

The actions you take that you realize later will cultivate your sense of purpose.
Sow a seed. Then you will reap an action.

Practice Empatheme.
