Those four words have stopped more innovation than any other. It's very easy to focus on the things that we don't have and get into a funk over that. Also, when we can rely on the statement that we are missing certain parts, moving something forward suddenly becomes the fault of someone or something else. This is a comfortable place to go, because we can squarely place the blame on the missing item and no longer have to figure out a way to make it work.
This is great from a comfort standpoint but certainly not from the standpoint of entrepreneurship. Imagine if someone at Apple had said that they were not building the iPhone because they didn't have an important piece of hardware. They'd be told to build it or find it or they'd be fired.
Chances are these four words have made it into your life at some point as well. They appear whenever things get difficult.
So today, I challenge you to decide how you are going to solve the problem. If you don't have time, how will you find more? If you don't have money, how will you make it? If you don't have connections, how will you find them?
I have been thinking about this recently because some folks have mentioned being worried about signing up for PLAE because they don't have a business idea ready to go. Some of the best business ideas that came out of PLAE came from people who came into the class without an idea.
Today is your day to stomp out those four words.
Make it happen.
