Beatles, Disney and Honda

“As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.” 

~ Rumi

The Beatles started in smokey, cramped clubs.

Disney’s first sketches were simple little doodles.

Soichiro Honda began with a tiny garage, adding motors to bicycles.

All of these legends have something in common — they took the first step in imperfect conditions.

Today’s lesson is simple…

Just. Get. Started. 

The reality is that you won’t ever be fully ready. 

There will never be a perfect time. You’ll never know for 100% if your plan will work. And you can’t leap to the 100th step without stepping onto the first.

🤦 Your first podcast might be filled with “umms” and awkward pauses. 

🤷 Your debut video may lack the finesse of a Spielberg production.

🙄 Your first sales pitch might be filled with stutters and hesitations.

A month ago, I started my own podcast studio. 

Do I feel ready?


I had no idea what I was doing (still don’t).

But I’m doing it. 

And the more I do it, the clearer the path is becoming

The path doesn’t lay itself out all at once. It reveals itself one step at a time. 

If you make a mistake or stumble along the way, that’s not a failure. It’s a lesson that teaches you what to do next, guiding you closer to your goal.

The first step doesn’t need to be perfect. It just needs to happen.

If you’re still hesitant to take the first step, here’s what you can do — 

Start with something so easy that it might feel too simple. For me, this usually means pulling out the notes on my phone and writing down what launching looks like.

If it’s starting a business, jot down one idea on a piece of paper. 

If it’s exercise, do one push-up. 

If it’s learning a language, learn one word. 

👉 Don’t wait for perfection. Don’t make excuses. Don’t delay.
