“I wish someone had told me” is a series of posts that feed into our inquisitive nature at CN&CO. Each week we hear from someone in our network about something interesting or surprising that’s recently happened or occurred to them – or lessons they learnt. These blogs are a way to pay it forward and form part of CN&CO’s belief that the world can be a better place – and we all have a responsibility to make it so. This week’s post is by Rob Christian, short and sweet.


It is never the right time to do something.

and yet…

It is always the right time to fix that.


We often fall into the trap of believing the timing isn’t right in life.

We don’t tell someone how we feel when we are feeling it.

We delay starting that new idea because we don’t have time (or perhaps we haven’t examined our priorities recently)

We don’t finish a project on deadline because we are waiting for more information from someone and the delay is on their end (at least it is according to your mind).


No one is ever perfect and nothing we do will ever fit that criteria either.

We can and should strive for excellence in all that we do but we shouldn’t hide behind timing or perfection as a reason to not do something. Life tends to get better once you realise the world continues to turn, regardless of your imperfection.

So tell that person how you feel.

Start that business today.

Finish that project now so you can move on.


The timing is never right.

The timing is always right.
