The first step is to stop waiting for others

People often think that ‘something external has to happen’ before they can start doing x, y, or z.

Rather, something internal has to happen. The first step is to stop waiting for others. Instead, get started!

Want to start designing buildings? You don’t have to wait until you’re a certified architect – start designing Lego buildings, make a small structure, start experiments with an architectural computer program, and so on.

Once you get going, you’ll get a better idea of what is actually involved, what the specific challenges are, whether you really want to do whatever it is, and so on.

    Note added: this is particularly relevant for university degrees. Say I want to be a biologist … once I get a piece of paper from this institution. This is the wrong way to do things. Start being a biologist … now! This will give you a better idea of whether you actually want to spend 4 years studying to receive certification from institute x, y, or z related to, in this case, biology.
