Now Is The Time

By Brian G • March 19, 2018

When I was 13 I wanted to learn guitar but I saw on TV some kid who was 11 and a child prodigy and I thought "I waited too long, now I'll be a beginner while kids like that are already great."

Then I was 23 and thought "Oh man if I had just started at 13 I would have ten years experience by now! But now why bother?"

At 33 I realized, damn if I had just started at 23 I would probably be pretty good at this by now, but now I'm old and would feel weird in a beginner class at this age, so I didn't.

At 43 I thought, why did I ever care what people would think instead of realizing I wanted to do something. But I didn't out of fear and regret, and because I kept thinking about he amount of time I'd already wasted, instead of the fact that right now is simultaneously the oldest I've ever been, and the youngest I will ever be again. Now is the time. For everything. Always.
