Complains about lack of resources has been one of the most common excuse that we give ourselves for not working upon our dreams. We keep waiting for that ideal situations when everything falls in place in just right manner for us to take our steps forward in the direction of our goals. Instead of waiting for the right blend of resources, opportunity and ideas what we must ask ourselves is how effectively and efficiently are we using what is already available to us.
