Why Now Is Better

Why the Time has to be now

I used to believe that if I didn’t start at an earlier (“better”) time, then there was no use starting now.

Because, I knew that if I had started when I originally said I was going to, I’d be so much farther down the road now.

My success would be greater than it is currently IF I’d just started then.

This soundtrack plays on repeat – and the scary thing is that it can keep me from starting now because I’m only thinking about “how great it would’ve been if I had started then.”

But stressing about when I *should* have originally started keeps me from doing what I need to do.

Which is starting.

And starting today – as ugly as it may be, as far behind as I think I am – still beats not starting.

Otherwise, 5 years from now I may kick myself for not starting today.

There’s a lot of people out there who will spend a lifetime wishing they’d have started something in their teens, their 20s, their 30s, their 40s, etc… yet, they’ll never start because “now” doesn’t seem as great of a time as “then.”

There will always have been a past time you’ll have wish you’d started something.

But you didn’t.

And there’s nothing you can do about that past moment.

So the best thing you can do is start NOW.

Because you can’t get to where you think you should be today unless you start moving forward. You can’t get better until you get going.

So start.

What’s ☝️ thing you’ve wished you started before 2018 (and didn’t) – but are committed to finally moving forward on it this year?
