An excuse that doesn’t serve you

“But I’m not qualified…”

Turns out that’s exactly why you should try it.

Your fresh perspective, unique worldview and inherent superpower might be exactly what is required to create meaningful change.

The only way to know is to raise your hand.

Chances are if you wait till you’re qualified, or worse, till you have permission you’ll be waiting a long time.

Elon Musk didn’t wait till he was qualified to make rockets just as much as a baby doesn’t wait till she’s qualified to start walking.

You can’t possibly be qualified to try something you’ve never done before.

Try stuff, build things, make assertions, ask questions and seek generous feedback.

That’s how we progress, not by sitting around waiting till someone deems us ready, like some kind of Pokemon.
