Adaptation ABCs: J is for Just do it





is for Just do it.
In the immortal words of Molly Cross, the best place to start is somewhere. There’s always more information you could gather, more people you could connect with, more related initiatives with which to coordinate. While these efforts are a great place to start, at some point the benefits of gathering more information before taking action are outweighed by the costs of delaying action. And remember, you can build your adaptation actions around an adaptive management or other structured decision-making framework so that you’re taking action and gathering information at the same time, so you can keep "just doing it" even better as you go! Doesn’t get much better than that, does it?
