Be More Like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos

The one thing holding most of us back is the false belief that we can’t do it, something, anything until it’s ready, perfect, finished.

Here’s the truth, if you wait for it to be ready, it never will be.  You have got to be willing to put it out there before it’s ready.

Think of the iPhone – how many people complained that it wasn’t ready when it was released?

As far as I can tell, there have been more than 13 versions of Windows released since draft 1 in November of 1985.   And some would say it’s still not ready.

And my most favorite of them all, the Kindle?  Just do a google search on “Kindle not ready” to see how many people think it wasn’t ready for release.  All I have to say about that is, Jeff, thanks so much for not waiting.  I love it.

The fact of the matter is that nothing is as good as it can be when it’s first released and if you wait for that magic day when it’s just right, you’ll never get there.

If Gates had waited to release Windows until it was “ready”, we might all still be using DOS today.

So go for it today, don’t wait. You are ready NOW.
