Dear Entrepreneur, If You Want to do it, Do it

Dear Entrepreneur, If You Want to Do It, Do It Do Not Hesitate

It is rain that causes flowers to blossom and not thunder. As an entrepreneur, it is an action that brings forth visible results and not just mere words. There is a very big difference between ‘saying’ and ‘doing.’

Entrepreneurship is like a race. The successfulness of a race is not measured by how many people set off at the starting point but by how many people reach the finishing line.

Nolan Bushnell says that the critical ingredient of successful entrepreneurship is getting off your butt and doing something. It is as simple as that.

A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.

It is good to dream though. Dreams sometimes give you a snapshot of how the future should be but to turn them into reality, you have to do something and the something you have to do is just ‘do something.’ Simple.

This is well demonstrated in the words of Martin Luther King Jr who said that if you can’t fly, run if you can’t run then walk if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward. That is what entrepreneurship is all about.

There are only three rules along the journey towards entrepreneurship. Rule number one: Do It. Rule number two: Do not do it. Rule number three: Do not forget rule number one and two.

There is nothing like trying in entrepreneurship. It is either you are doing it or not. Simple. I agree with Catherine Cook when she said that to any entrepreneur if you want to do it, do it now.

If you don’t, you are going to regret it. Entrepreneurship is not about having ideas, it is about making ideas happen.
