There's A Reason People Are Still Saying, 'Carpe Diem'
By Ed • April 29, 2019
Stop waiting. Start doing. It's all too easy to tell ourselves that once we lose twenty pounds, we'll be happy, or once we have more free time, we'll start reading more and working out. We think we're too busy now to do that thing we want to do, or we'll be happy once we've done that thing, but we haven't even started working on it.
News Flash: You'll always be busy. Or you'll be tired. Or someone else will need your time. Or you'll feel like you don't have enough knowledge or skill to start. Something always comes up. There is no perfect time. There is always something you can use as a reason not to start. If you're looking for a reason not to be happy now, you'll find it.
Inaction is one of the biggest time wasters. The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The second best time is now. Plant the tree. You aren't getting any younger, and nothing is going to change unless you take things into your own hands and change them.
The most valuable thing you can do is just get started. Don't overthink it. Do something.
