(Great questions lead to great answers; weak questions, weak ones.)


“If not now, when?”


Coaching Point: The instant reaction to this classic question is usually, “Well I would, but… .” We have a host of reasons to not do things right now — we don’t know how, we’re not ready, we’re scared, someone else may not like it. The truth is progress only comes from right actions and right actions only come from…. taking actions, some of which will be right actions and some of which won’t. You don’t know from here. The only place to learn is by taking the action. Who can you get to help you take action? When will you ask them? Now?
