Do it now. Sometimes ‘Later’ becomes ‘Never’Anonymous
How many of you plan to do something but somehow you just didn’t get started? In my life, I have done it numerous times, I plan to start a website a few years back but never got started till very recently. The most recent one though, I plan to write a short book a few months back but never got started till today. As I am writing these I am motivating myself to get started too. (cough cough 😀 )
Moving on, we all plan to do something in our life, we plan to change our job, we plan to start a business, we plan to start studying, we plan to start going back to see our family, we plan to start reaching for our goals. However, we are just busy with other things occupying our life and no longer putting the things we want most as our priority. We may keep telling ourselves that we should do this, we should do that, however, sooner or later, that ‘should’ will become a ‘should have’, we would eventually say, ‘ we should have done this, we should have done that.’ Hence, to avoid the regrets in life, one of the key is to DO IT NOW!
Therefore, whatever your goals or dreams may be, you can start by doing now, working towards it step by step, one of the best motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar said ‘You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to be GREAT’. For when we Do it NOW, We have WON…. If you turn ‘Now’ around, it becomes ‘Won’. Let me share 2 things you’ve won against if you start now.
Firstly, we have won ourselves ‘TIME’. When we start now, time is on our side. Time is no more longer an issue for us. If not, when things are not finished, many of us would normally not blame it on ourselves but rather blame it on time, saying ‘time is not enough or we should more hours in a day.’ The thing is everyone of us have the same number of hours in a day, its all depends on how we use it. Successful people and non successful people have the same watch on their hand, but the successful people knows how to use time wisely. Therefore, for when we start doing it now, we will eliminate the issue of not having enough time.
Secondly, we have won ourselves over ‘PROCRASTINATION’. Every now and then, there is always the thought in our head saying ‘do it later’ ‘you have plenty of time’ ‘just do it next week’, etc….. Procrastination is one of the main reason why we just didn’t get started. We thought we are still in the safe zone, but when all the deadlines approaches, your boss or your teacher start asking for your projects, then suddenly we began asking ourselves where did all the time go and why didn’t I started earlier? How many of us are facing this? I have it too. Therefore, one way to beat procrastination is to simply start now.
In closing, whatever you are facing through, no matter how high your goal is, no matter how big your dreams are, no matter what you want to achieve in life, take the initiative and the responsibility to start doing now, for when we do it NOW, we have WON!!!
