Nobody told me to do that

Nobody told me to write a guide on Open XML spreadsheets, but I did it anyway.

Nobody told me I could continue publishing my own magazine, without any revenue, and armed only with the passion to spread my ideas and finding like-minded individuals, but I did it anyway.

Nobody told me to start making videos, but I did it anyway.

Nobody told me to help people with maths questions, but I did it anyway (for free).

Nobody told me to help people for free when I offer a programming guide for purchase, but I did it anyway.

Nobody told me to write a thank you email to customers when they buy from me, but I did it anyway.

Nobody told me to write blog posts here, but I did it anyway (because I enjoy writing here).

You don’t need anyone to tell you to do anything. Losing weight. Gaining muscle. Be a better speaker. Be a better programmer. Learn to dance. Learn a new language. Travel the world. Travel the world on a budget. Start a new business. Have children. Teach children. Teach someone a skill.

You don’t need the year to end, and a new year to begin, to start. If you don’t need permission from someone to start, you certainly don’t need permission from the Earth rotating about the Sun to start.

Say “I will do that.” Then go do that.
