I’d be lying if I never said something like “I’ll start tomorrow“, “Next week”, or start on said date. But the best time isn’t tomorrow or whenever we tell ourselves we’ll begin. The best time to start was yesterday because procrastination plays a significant role in failure. If you keep telling yourself you’ll do it but never act on it, you won’t be going anywhere.
Start today, and progress by 1% every day. If you want to get fit but procrastinate a lot, start by doing as little as 5 minutes and stop. It may be small but by doing 5 minutes every day, you turn it into a habit. And soon enough that 5 minutes turns into 10, and that 10 into 20, and that 20 into 40, and so on.
Starting today will put you ahead of everyone else. Most people talk about what they’re going to do but the next day comes around and they still aren’t doing anything. Start right now because once you do, you’ll build momentum. And when it’s time to work again, the habit of taking action would be developed making it easier to start.
Don’t wait for the “right” time, there is no such thing. Waiting only increases your chances of never taking action and never reaching your true potential.
Time is constantly moving. It doesn’t care if you’re tired, sad, lazy, etc. We are 5 months into the new year and it feels like it just started yesterday. So imagine if you keep on waiting, 5 years will go by and you’ll still be stuck in the same place. Take advantage of your time, build something, and don’t stop until you’re successful.
“None of it works unless YOU work. We have to do our part. If knowing is half the battle, action is the second half of the battle.” ― Jim Kwik
