Richard Branson - Screw It, Lets Do It

“Screw it, lets do it!” – Richard Branson

We spend far too much time deciding, calculating outcomes, figuring, thinking, but not actually doing. As many freelancers do, I’m going to use my mother as an example. My mother refuses to choose a movie when we’re sitting down for a family movie night. She will not choose, possibly even on pain of death. Now she may be doing this simply because she wants us to choose so we will be happy with the movie. But it goes a little deeper than that, you see, we all get to a point in a decision where we refuse to make one because we aren’t even sure we can make it. A literal brain full stop.

Had I stayed in that tar pit like thinking, never actually deciding, I would have never chosen a degree. May not have even gone to college. Caution is a good thing, and advice is something to certainly take under consideration. But sometimes the best advice you can give yourself is “Screw it, let’s do it!”
