Don’t wait to get better, just start. Your skill will catch up to your hustle. ~Chad Howse
“Who am I to give advice on…?”
That’s a question I think everyone’s asked at some point or another. We all feel unworthy of giving guidance in any form. (Read This: The Most Important Question You Can Ask)
When I started this business I couldn’t count how many people know more than me about any given topic I’m covering, heck, I still can’t. The numbers are likely endless. But that doesn’t mean that what you have to say or the work you want to do isn’t going to help someone.
And guess what happens…
The more you work and the harder you work and the more you work at acquiring knowledge and perfecting your craft, the better you become and the better your work becomes.
But it cannot become great if you never start.
Don’t wait to be better, just start, then your skill will catch up with your hustle.

If you don’t work hard, you’re fucked. But then if you thought success came without hard work then you’re delusional. (Read This: Work Hard, and Do It Every Day)
The key is to start.
When you start, the wheels of the world work in accordance to the actions you take.
The greater the action, the greater the reward of said action is coupled with persistence.
So start. Set out to be the best at whatever you aim to do, but with the knowledge that, at the onset, you’re far from the best and you’re going to have to work your ass off every damn day to get there.
William H. Murray wrote the following, and more perfect words cannot be written:
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.”
