Do it NOW

A great freedom comes when you have done everything that needs to be done. When you don’t have the burden of things you’ve said you’d do “later", you are free to pursue your dreams.

When something needs to be done, do it now. Then you only have to deal with it once. If you keep putting it off, you spend an enormous amount of energy worrying about it and feeling guilty about it. And it’s still not done. Who needs that? Either do it now, schedule a specific time to do it, or decide NOT to do it. Don’t carry around a lot of vague “laters". They clog your brain and your spirit, and slow you down.

When you stop stockpiling “laters” and start taking decisive action, you gain clarity, focus and effectiveness. Do it now!

— Ralph Marston
