Do you know what the busiest day of the year is? Christmas? Thanksgiving? Black Friday?
Nope. It’s tomorrow.
Everything’s going to happen “tomorrow.” We’ll start exercising, eat healthier, stop smoking, work harder, read more, study better, close that sale … tomorrow. As the saying goes, “There’s no time like the present to procrastinate.”
We all drag our feet occasionally. While there are tons of tips you can find about time management and how to stop procrastinating, it really boils down to three words:
Think about the task or goal. Plan the best way to achieve it. Take action. The vision must be followed by the venture or it’s just wishful thinking.
To quote Martin Luther King, Jr.: “You don’t have to see the whole staircase to take the first step.”
If you keep waiting until tomorrow to begin, it won’t be long before “not now” becomes “never.”
