Right Now

Kevin Kelly at Medium:

So, the truth: Right now, today, in 2014 is the best time to start something on the internet. There has never been a better time in the whole history of the world to invent something. There has never been a better time with more opportunities, more openings, lower barriers, higher benefit/risk ratios, better returns, greater upside, than now. Right now, this minute. This is the time that folks in the future will look back at and say, “Oh to have been alive and well back then!”

People frequently find some way to complain that business is tough, that it’s out of their control and its someone else’s fault. Then, someone else comes along and shares a few encouraging words, looking on the bright side. Everyone gets warm, fuzzy feelings again. Then, a few weeks later, we cycle back around and start the ritualistic complaints again.

Did the situation change that much? Or did people change their focus? I think you know the answer.
