I recently read a post from marketing guru Seth Godin that I thought had such a good message it was worth sharing.
In a nutshell he wrote about how, back in 1995, he had authored one of the very first books on digital currencies called Presenting Digital Cash – certainly before its time.
So with the advent of Bitcoin entering the market in 2008, you would have thought that he would have gone out and bought his share of digital cash to back up his ideas.
As it turns out, he didn’t.
He didn’t buy a single coin.
In fact, if he had bought as little as $1,000 worth of Bitcoin back then, it would be worth a staggering $40 million today.
What he wrote after this was so insightful I felt it was best to write it here word for word…
It’s not that I didn’t know.
It’s that I didn’t act.
Two different things.
I knew, but I didn’t know for sure. Not enough to act.
All the good stuff happens when we act even if we don’t know for sure.

The last sentence is the lightbulb moment.
“All the good stuff happens when we act even if we don’t know for sure”.
Sometimes we spend all our time chasing absolute certainty when we really need to be comfortable with the knowledge that we’ll never know it all, but we move forward regardless.
It can make us nervous.
It can make us uncomfortable.
But that’s where the magic happens.
If you’re looking to get out there and do something yourself, you’ll find plenty of opportunities waiting in this month’s market report.
It holds all of the key stats you need for a big-picture understanding of the market so you can get on with things rather than trawl through hours of articles every month.
