Embrace the inconvenience

Life doesn’t happen only after you neatly tidy everything up. Life happens all the time, in the moment that is now.

You can’t just put off your enjoyment, put off your actions, and put off living your values until conditions are ideal. Now is the time to enjoy, to get work done, and to give focus and substance to those things that matter most.

So what if it’s not perfect, or if it’s complicated, confusing or inconvenient? This is your opportunity to live and to make progress, so take full advantage of it.

You won’t ever get all the questions answered and all the loose ends tied up. However, there is much you can accomplish when you decide to go ahead no matter what.

If something is inconvenient, then embrace the inconvenience and resolve to make good come out of it. Be okay with things not being perfect and you’ll be able to get much more done.

Under any circumstance, at any time, is a time that you can use to make the world better. Take life as it comes, and give it your best.
