I thought they were all wonderful responses but I promised I would share 3 important questions to ask when thinking about whether to move forward with an entrepreneurial venture, an idea or a dream. First I think you should ask:
1. If Not Now...When?

2. If Not Here...Where?
Sometimes our circumstances are better in a different situation,another location, career opportunity,less stressful environment, removed from negative people and toxic behavior. This may mean you have to consider emotionally, physically and/or mentally removing yourself from the place that hampers your ability to make careful decisions and follow through. If you are constantly in a state of physical depletion, mental turmoil or emotional upheaval you will never be content with making decisions that could impact the rest of your life. If the place you are in now doesn't offer growth maybe it's time to relocate to a different mental, emotional or physical state before you can move on with your plans.
3. If Not Me...Who?

There is nothing worse than knowing something should be done about an issue, circumstance or concern and yet wondering who is going to do it. You can easily sit back and hope someone will come along and fix something that bothers your heart and soul or you can recognize that perhaps the reason you are so affected is because YOU are the person who is to "do something about it." Sometimes waiting for the right person is futile if you are the right person. The decision to move on with something important to you is often best resolved whenever you realize you do care and you can begin to attack the issue from your own point of view. Waiting for the next person to step up to bat could cost you a home run opportunity.
Waffling is dangerous when you let it go on and infest your life constantly causing you to remain in the same circumstance because you can't make the decisions you need for ending some things and beginning others. Asking yourself some important questions and NOT waffling about what you realize after you discover the answers is always a good decision.
