Do it now

Things you’re always going to do later never do get done. What you put off until someday will always be out of your reach.

If anything is important enough to do someday, then it is worth starting on right now. If you’re going to actually do it, then you must do it in the moment you’re in.

Procrastination may seem like an easy way to avoid taking action. What it really is, though, is an ever-increasing burden of guilt and regret that you place on yourself.

Think of how awful it feels to know that you could have done, or could be doing, but instead you waited until too late. Fortunately, there is a simple and highly effective way to ease that burden.

Take action now. Choose something that you have continued putting off, and go ahead and get it done.

You’ve made many great plans and promises. Go ahead, act on them, and see how great it is to make them real.

— Ralph Marston
