Tomorrow – Plan On It!
I have spent a lot of time sitting on my backside waiting for things to happen. And by “things” I don’t mean an end to the laundry spin cycle or the percolator to brew that perfect cup of java. I mean THINGS, like a new job or an opportunity to do something important. You know…THINGS.
How often have you heard a friend say, “Next year when I have more money. . .” or “Once I find a better job. . .” Maybe you are even the person saying it. The question is, what is being done to make the THING happen?
My brother told me once that a goal without a plan is just a dream. Boy, was he right. It turns out that THINGS rarely happen on their own. We have to make them happen, or at least point our lives in the right direction. Who knew?
Yeah, that sounds pretty obvious, but as a kid I was a natural optimist, be-bopping along figuring whatever was wrong with today would surely be better tomorrow. A little angel magic would come along, right? What I know now that I didn’t know then is that waiting for THINGS does not make them happen. The angel magic exists, but it is found in the planning and the working, the sometimes sweating and fighting for our end goal.
Whatever it is you want, go for it. Life is too short, buttercup, to wait for tomorrow.
Better that we plan for it, instead.
Til next time –
