someday today

I met a friend for coffee a few weeks ago and she told me about a big, exciting idea that she has for a new business venture.  She was so excited that she could hardly slow down to take a breath.  She shared tons of details which told me she had given it a lot of thought too; staying up late at night, making notes and waking up first thing in the morning with this big idea on her mind.  Then I asked the $24,000 question:  What are you doing to get started?  Can you hear the crickets?  Apparently this was an idea for “someday.” I was left wondering, what’s really stopping you from making someday today?
