What gets you off your butt?  What sets you in motion and forces you to take the action you know to be beneficial but have been delaying?    Your family?  Your bank balance?  Your cause?  Your disappointment levels?  Health?  Your lust for a better outcome next time?  Relationships?  Reputation?  Or do those things not inspire action.  Are you okay with these things being… mediocre?  If you’re fine with mediocre generally, may I suggest you don’t go into business for yourself?  If satis...
