"Inspiration is perishable, act on it immediately." – Naval Ravikant
To help understand this idea, consider the contrast between the two concepts ancient Greeks used to think about time:
Chronos — the chronological passage of time.
Kairos — the right, critical, or opportune moment.
The best analogy I've heard for Kairos: an archer waiting for the perfect moment to release an arrow in order to hit a target.
Too early, you miss, too late, you miss.
Often, timing is more important than time.
