Do It Now

Tomorrow will always be better, so stop waiting and do it now. If you keep still anticipating the next big thing, you’re going to miss out on a lot.

Take me. I’ve been holding off on posting my thoughts on design and the web till I could find the right platform. Well guess what: that right platform’s always going to be something else. Before it was Tumblr, then Wordpress, then Scriptogram, then whatever. Now I have a bunch of lengthy opinions on outdated topics, some dating well over a year ago. What use are they now? I could have just posted them anywhere, anywhere at all, and they would have been more significant than filler for my drafts folder.

There is a well-worn quip for this, which is still very true: Real artists ship. Don’t wait for the next big thing. Be it.
