Do good work, practice, and be patient.
Do not wait for the timing to be right to do good work. Do good work until the timing is right.
Everything prior to the perfect moment is simply practice and preparation for that moment.
If you wait for the perfect moment to arrive, you and your skills will not be ready to take advantage of it and the moment will pass you by.
