It’s already too late when:

  • Anyone says, “We need to talk.”
  • You start thinking up excuses before you even do what you need the excuse for.
  • It’s the first snowfall.
  • You HAVE TO find a job.
  • The online shit storm has started about your brand, and it’s been 7 months since you last tweeted from the company account.
  • Somebody says, “I want to pick your brain.”
  • One door closed, and another one opened, and then it subsequently closed too because of your inaction.
  • You have to ask for something a third time.
  • The fat lady is warming up to sing.
  • You’ve already broken into a sweat.
  • You’ve said everything YOU need to say.
  • Whatever it is, it is already on TV.
  • You hear, “This has never happened before.”
  • You hear, “This will never happen again.”
  • You’re tired of your own voice (or face or writing).
  • Somebody is already tweeting OH tweets about your great idea.
  • You can’t stay awake any longer.
  • It’s easy for you to quickly name three regrets.
  • The headache has already started.
  • Your partner laughs (or doesn’t laugh) at completely the wrong time.
  • Your new boss’ high school nickname was “Wrong Way.”
  • It’s impossible to remember why something was important in the first place.
  • They’ve already started digging.
  • You write a blog post about how you’ll convince your fans you’re still a humble person when you get really famous online.
  • Someone you can’t really trust tells you it ISN’T too late. – Mike Brown
