You often hear the phrase ‘the time to strike is now.’ Others will tell you it’s not time until you’re ready for it to happen. A third party may say to you the time to strike is when it’s right. A good thing to ask yourself is whether they’re telling you this for your sake or theirs.
Many of us have a trait of taking forever to do something and often attempting it well after it should have happened. Others get ahead of themselves and run forward with a half-baked idea that is way too underdeveloped. The trick is to find that perfect timing when what you have developed is ready for a world desperately desiring what you have to offer.
There are no books to tell you when is right. The timing is trial and error on your part. The more you do, the more you learn; and the more you learn, the more you know.
What chances have you taken lately in trying to put something out there to help others?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future.
Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
