The Perfect Time To Start
There isn’t a perfect time…
But if that seems a little negative, then… the perfect time is NOW. When you don’t feel like you have the perfect equipment or your body isn’t perfect, or your situation is not perfect. There are just too many factors to consider that you will put it off completely and one day, you’ll wish you had just started.
The idea that nobody and nothing is perfect, to me, seems a little unrealistic, what if every single thing happens in it’s perfect time, whether we’re prepared for it or not? That to me seems a little more realistic and believable. It is our perception of perfect that makes it seem so unobtainable.
We hold ourselves back from so much because we fear that others would think we’re inadequate. I used to put off so much because I never felt it was good enough to share, and I’ve always loved the idea of creating something, from nothing at all. When I started YouTube for example, I used my Android phone and I edited on my phone with free software I found on the internet, I also edited on my laptop with the software that came with it, and people still watched my videos.
Fast-forward a few years, I’ve bought a bunch of fancy equipment and downloaded expensive software but at the end of the day, the content is what people really look at. It’s important to start with what you have and work your way along until you’re truly happy with the content. Sometimes it’s not that what we have isn’t good enough, it’s more that we don’t research and use our equipment in it’s optimal use.
Like some phone’s don’t perform well in poor lighting, yet we record our videos at night. Or we don’t have great audio yet we film in noisy areas. It’s stuff like this where there are quick fixes that we don’t take the time to research. We assume that others have “more” and almost measure ourselves to them, so we always run at a loss.
The quicker we realize that what we have and who we are are good enough, the quicker we will follow our dreams, unapologetically.
Stop waiting for the perfect time, because that way, it may never happen.Tazz Adams
