On Saturday, I needed to run some errands but I talked myself out of it… “There’s still Sunday! I have plenty of time on Sunday.” Well, Sunday happened to knock me out with a nasty head cold. So much for Sunday.
My greatest enemy is the assumption of tomorrow.
Whenever we stumble, we just say:
I’ll start that diet, tomorrow.
I’ll start that exercise plan, tomorrow.
I’ll start that novel, tomorrow.
I’ll work on that new business idea, tomorrow.
Well, gosh darn it. That’s not good enough.
We can’t do everything in one day. But we need to fight off that excuse, that silly bit of reason that says “There’s time for that in the future.” We have to look at our priorities. We should make small steps, at least. One hundred words here and there will get you several thousand within a few months. Walking across a parking lot rather than parking next to the door will help jump start that exercise routine.
It can’t wait until tomorrow, because who knows what tomorrow will bring. In many cases, it might bring a nasty head cold.
What are you putting off for tomorrow? Come on, fess up in the comments.
