The old begin to complain of the conduct of the young when they themselves are no longer able to set a bad example.

Someday is not good enough

When it comes to what you intend to do, someday is not good enough. Someday never comes, and is nothing more than a way to put things off indefinitely.

If you really want to get it done, give yourself a deadline. Stop listening to your own excuses and start moving ahead with the work.

Give yourself a deadline and make it challenging, yet realistic. Then get started making it happen.

You have many great ideas for making life even better than it already is. Those ideas deserve to be acted upon.

A deadline forces you to focus, prioritize, innovate, take action and persist. A deadline provides you with a tangible way to measure progress, and to make adjustments along the way.

Transform your feeble hopes and empty wishes for someday into real, effective actions today. Give yourself a deadline, and give yourself the incomparable experience of bringing your best intentions to life.

— Ralph Marston
