You Can Do Something Now

“Start where you are, Use what you have, Do what you can” -Arthur Ashe

Today was difficult for me. I broke the auto focus on my Nikon lens, got into a fender bender and lost some cash. I’m not communicating as well as I would like to with people that are important to me.

Despite my day, I’m focusing on what I can do, and doing it.

Action is the underrated catalyst for awesomeness. Things don’t just happen, they get done.

Right now, there is something you are stuck on. You don’t have to solve it right now, but you DO need to move the needle. Go do that thing.

What are you currently stuck on? Let me know in the comments

  • Hey, happy to be of help! Thanks for your comment, and for taking a look at random iPhone pictures.

    Now go get it done!

    I just found your blog through the best camera site ( What a nice discovery for my day! Funny thing is, while you thought you weren't clear on the day of this posting, I find you to be speaking clearly to me. Today, I am stuck on creating a Web site that is long overdue and for a dear friend. Today, I'm going to focus on what I can do, and do it.
