Are you in the habit of putting off things until “someday”? With all that has gone on the last few months, most of us realize just how precious life is and maybe there are certain things that we shouldn’t put off until someday.
Do you know why I am saying this?
Because “someday” never comes. We only have today and what we make of it. Yes, we can plan and we can schedule things out, but as most of us have seen, some things are out of our hands when it comes to how we operate our business or make choices for our families.
So, the important thing is to make the very best of today. If there is something that you can do today to build your business to the next level or help someone out, do it now. There’s no guarantee that you have tomorrow to do it.
I’ve given this illustration before of how fast a life goes by. Let me give it to you again.
I want you to do an exercise for me using a tape measure.
Take the tape measure, set it on the floor, and mark that very first notch as the day you were born.
The next few dashes – mark graduation, marriage, birth of kids, etc.
Also put a mark down for the day you started your business.
Then the inevitable question becomes this: How long is that tape measure?
How long do you think you’re going to live?
Have you thought about what’s outside of that tape measure — what is your legacy going to be?
Or have you forgotten why you’re doing this business? Did you start it so that you and your family would have the freedom to do the things that were important to you?
Maybe you’re just drifting, inch by inch, year by year along your life and in your business. Or you feel like Covid has changed your trajectory.
Let’s get back on the path; back on the horse so to speak.
If you’re looking for the mark on the tape measure that says “Someday,” it’s not there.
This isn’t a dress rehearsal. Your life is represented in this tape measure. It has a beginning, it has a messy middle, and it has an end.
Are you ready to face the truth?
Someday NEVER comes!
