Someday I’m going to go on a Safari or ride a horse on the beach or learn to speak Italian.
When is someday? What does someday look like? Why do we even have to wait for someday? There are no guarantees in life that we will be around when someday eventually shows up or even be physically able to do some of the things on our list. Many put off their someday list for too long and never get to do these things, so why wait to enjoy your someday wish list? (Some might call it a bucket list.) There is no time like the present to start chasing those dreams and goals you want.
- Don’t think you’ll never be “ready”: It’s true—sometimes and in certain situations, you actually can be “ready.” But for the majority of things that really matter, the experiences and challenges that will change your life, you can’t be 100% ready. And if you keep waiting for that readiness to appear, you’ll wait forever, and before you know it, you’ll have missed your chance.
- Planning is pointless when it’s not followed by action: You know all those lavish, detailed, calculated plans you’ve been making? They’ll be nothing more than an absolute waste of time if you don’t act on those plans. Isn’t that the whole reason for planning, to actually do something? You’re wasting valuable time by not executing on those plans today.
- You deserve to happy: Happiness is something we’re all entitled to. But many times, happiness is a direct product
of taking life by the horns and making something happen. Today should be the day you make something happen. It’s also a good idea to reevaluate your list from time to time.
- There’s no refund for lost time: Time is the one thing that you can never get back. Once it’s gone, it’s gone for good. The last thing you want to do is to wait 20 years, then look back and wonder “what-if?” It’s okay to fail. It’s okay to stumble, but to never take action isn’t something you should accept. The longer you wait, the less time you have to reach those goals.
- Your excuses don’t help: A lack of time, money, resources, skills, and knowledge are nothing more than excuses that are preventing you from achieving those goals you think you want. If you’re productive and prioritize correctly, you’ll easily find a way to get started on something on your list.
Chances are that whatever it is you want to achieve, it’s going to take some practice and perseverance. But you won’t achieve anything if you don’t take action. And the sooner you take action, the sooner you’ll start enjoying someday.
