What are you waiting for? Start now!

What are you waiting for? Start now!

Today is a day to reflect. I have been thinking of starting for years now, but it’s so easy to fall into a routine that feels safe and not take a chance on what you truly enjoy doing.

In the last year, I was thinking of going into bookkeeping. But the realisation that it isn’t my dream made me truly stop and consider what I wanted from my future, and I decided to take that leap with The Blink Box!

Make sure you love what you do

If there is something you have always wanted to do with your life, why wait? It’s entirely possible to start small and aim high. Doing what you love isn’t always on the top of everyone’s list, because it might not feel safe, or perhaps you don’t think it is even possible.

So many of us go through life without ever stopping to consider what makes us happy, don’t let your routine get in the way of your dream. I felt this struggle when I was considering starting my own business, and now just wish I had taken this leap earlier!

Write a list

Put together a list of where you see yourself in one, three and five years time. Ask yourself if it really is the plan you want for your life. List your strengths and weaknesses, and where you’ll really shine! 

This is also a good time to put together a rough plan on how you’ll achieve what you’ve set out to - how much time is it going to take, or will you have to sacrifice other things in your life while you get your venture set up?

Organise your day and stay as productive as possible, but don’t forget to take time for yourself to make sure you have a positive work/life balance.

Don’t give up

Give yourself time. Starting something entirely new and different can be scary, but if things don’t go according to plan, don’t give up so easily. Welcome each new challenge as an opportunity to learn something, and build your dream from home, from the ground up, making sure it reflects ‘you’!
