What are You Waiting for?


Do it now! Whatever it is you have been putting off, do it. This is your life, it is not a dress rehearsal. What is it you have always wanted to do but, for some unknown reason, never quite get to? I am referring to those usually minor desires, not major goals like "get married" or "start a business."

For me it has been things like, swim with dolphins and ride in a glider plane. These were not major accomplishments but still, for some reason, I had been putting them off for years. Why? Why is it we have a tendency to treat our lives as though we will live forever?

In truth, our time here on this earth is but a brief moment in time. If you compare our, perhaps, 100 years here to the age of this planet we call home, you will see we are only here for a blink in time.

What are you putting off? What are some of the things you have always wanted to experience but are postponing because you think you have all the time in the world?

Read the obituaries in today's newspaper and realize that everyone whose name is in there thought they had another day. It is not my intent to offend you but I do want to shock you into the realization that, this is it! This is your life.

Your life is precious

Do not treat it lightly. Live now! Have you always wanted to sky dive? Visit the Great Pyramids? Swim with dolphins? See Niagara Falls? Whatever it is you have always wanted to do but have been putting off, decide now to do it. Make a plan. Determine what you will need to do to prepare. Find out the costs involved. Take action.

When I started writing this book I had still not swam with dolphins, even though it was something I really wanted to do. There were no logical reasons why I had not done it. I simply kept putting it off. It was always in my "someday I'll" file.

Someday is now! I am pleased to say I have experienced swimming with these wonderful and noble creatures. It was great! Doing it was simple enough. All I needed to do was take action.

In your journal, answer the following:

What is you have always wanted to do?

What preparations will you need to make?

What is you target date to complete this?
