I am a believer in learning to do things excellently. I am also a believer in urgency and in a need to do something you really want to do. So, what happens when you don’t have enough skills and resources to hire experts up front to do that something you really want to do? Does it mean you should put it on hold? If Thomas Edison decided to wait until he had all the resources and answers to the making and inventing of a light bulb that most of us use today, maybe things would have been different today.
The famous Zig Ziglar said, “Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly until you can learn to do it well.”
When it’s our first time to do something, it’s not going to be really good or fancy. But as we continue doing it, practicing and learning, we always hope to get better at it. This is how I feel about this first edition of YouCount Magazine; you can click here to read or download it for free in PDF format. But I think YouCount Magazine is going to get better as we go along because I know this dream is achievable.
There is also this saying that says, “Easy come, easy go.” Therefore, in any process, the best parts are in the learning of making, creating, and becoming, and that take time.
One thing I have learned is that do not be afraid to try something just because you are afraid it will fail, or you are waiting for perfect timing, when all resources and everything are together. Successful people are risk takers. Sometimes in order to succeed you must be willing to fail and be ridiculed.
So allow me to welcoming YouCount Magazine, part of Helen Majaga International project. Your feedback will be appreciated. Please send us an email, and let us know what you think or if you have any suggestions for the next YouCount Magazine edition.
Thank you for your time.
