The Right Time

My gut tells me this statement is all wrong. Not now. Later. When I am ready, better prepared, more balanced, more grown up…..Do you find yourself having these late night chats with yourself?

And yet I know that if you came to me with a new idea, project or opportunity I would be encouraging you to go forward and make the most of it. This does not mean that I would want you to jump blindly into something you could not handle but I am aware that for many women we struggle to start the new thing because we ‘feel’ under qualified. Men on the other hand – fake it until they make it, well some of them do.

Let’s take back some of that courage and bravado and do it now. Now is the right time. Are you with me?

Women are time poor

‘Women ┬áhave been described as time poor….Everything seems to be the result of good organisation. The question of the expenditure of time is not simply quantitative; it is strictly structured by the time requirements of others’ lives.’

Maria Tamboukou (2000) p. 470
