READY, SET, GO! (read time :47)
I’m good at “SET” —the last mix before we master; the final proof before we publish; the one last link-test before we launch. I’m also good at “GO” —that instant when the print command is given; the site is finally launched; or the director yells, “that’s a wrap!” At that moment I’m ready to celebrate!

Many things in life are found to be in three stages. Morning, noon, night. Beginning, middle, end. Birth, life, death. Ready, set, go. Perhaps if we see the third step as the start of a new beginning, rather than the end, we will be more apt to follow through and do the third step.

| Ready and set to go? |
We're never truly totally ready and set to go when it comes to writing promo material for a band,having every thing in a band contract exactly perfect. You just have to get in there and do it. I have a brother who's a farmer and businessman from here in Canada. He just does it, he doesn't wait until things are just right. And he's one person who's not an artist of any kind, but has what it takes to succeed. We could all learn a lot from people who are not musicians,writers or actors. So, do business today and go forward, before you're 1 million percent ready. Mark

Yes, I like the other posts! One thing I find as well is that I must be in the present moment and enjoy the GO moment. Let go of judgments and expectations. Life truly is made of moments. And the GO moments can be extremely rewarding.

| CLARITY |
I always want to vision, create, execute, explore... The planning and prep is such a struggle for me... Although, it's a real clarifier.

Unfortunately I'm an outlier of preparedness. Platforms on, makeup on,...and no show :(!

| Getting |
I so agree with your analogy. Been there, did that as a writer for ABYSSJazz Magazine. I struggled with "go" every month. I learned that I had to love the process as much as the outcome. With firmly imprinted on my heart getting pass "go" became less of a struggle

| Well... |
Well put...I can the feel the stakes intrinsic to the process of creation in reading your post. Making good art is one thing, making great art is a whole other animal. Facing the beast until the last note is played, the last brush is stroked, the last t is crossed...Though at times it may come easy, the true artist knows how grueling creation can be. But worth it in the end, alas in the end every time. If I caught your drift...I appreciate the sentiment. TK

| Getting "ready" |
Yes, the getting ready IS the hardest part. I'm often itching to go, go, go when I haven't done all the preparation. And even when I think I'm "ready" the expert, the coach, the consultant says I'm not ready and I want to SCREAM!!! Some of us may NEVER be ready and are procastinators. I think we need WISDOM to know when we're READY....J.Michael, care to comment on that?---not ready yet
