Dare to Start: When to Start

So I get to meet a lot of talented people who have grand plans but are scared to start. They don’t know when to start. So I compiled a list of what I think is the best time to start executing plans.

Here we go:

  • The best time to start is when you have got enough money in the bank to support all contingencies.
  • The best time to start is when the competition is far behind in technology, sophistication and market acceptance.
  • The best time to start is when the competition is not too far behind, because then you will spend too long educating the market.
  • The best time to start is when everything at home is stable and you can really focus.
  • The best time to start is when you are out of debt and have saved enough cash.
  • The best time to start is when no one is already working on your idea.
  • The best time to start is when your patent comes through and no one can steal your idea.
  • The best time to start is after you have got all your funding from the bank.
  • The best time to start is when the political environment is more friendly than it is now.
  • The best time to start is after you have got your degree and probably an MBA in entrepreneurship.
  • The best time to start is after you have worked on all the weaknesses in your business plan.
  • The best time to start is when you are sure it’s going to work for sure.
  • The best time to start is after you have hired the key marketing person for the new division.
  • The best time to start was last year. The best opportunities are already gone.
  • The best time to start is before some analyst declares your industry dead. Too late.
  • The best time to start is when the new generation of computers and processors are launched and delivered.
  • The best time to start is when the political environment settles down.

Actually, as you have probably guessed, the best time to start was last year. The second best time to start is right now.

Go.
