The man of substance does not wait for the right moment to begin something, he starts where he is and when he is! Things may not be perfect to act, but he can prepare. He may not be aware of everything that needs to be prepared, but he can gather information and plan. It may take time, but he will not miss the opportunity to do something worthwhile over time because he cannot do it all right now.
I threw out a challenge to my children today. I challenged them to bring their change home and gather it together for the next 18 months in preparation for some fine dining experiences on our next trip to Disneyland. It will take time, and we are starting small, but a man of substance understands that small actions repeated over time are what build a legacy.
Start small, if you must, but start now!
