I am a complete sucker for ‘list’ articles.
If I am not careful in the mornings, I can spend WAY too much time reading random lists from Twitter and Facebook. Put a number in front of something I am interested in or is about me and I will click on it.
- 12 things successful people don’t do
- 6 ways to increase your metabolism
- 26 things only a-type people do
- 10 leadership disciplines that positively affect the workplace
Yes, I made all of those up…but if there was an article that went with them, I would read it.
10 Choices You Will Regret in 10 Years
Yup, you better believe I clicked on that one and read it. Who doesn’t want to regret 10 things 10 years from now?
One of the ‘regrets‘ was “endlessly waiting until tomorrow.”
The trouble is, you always think you have more time than you do. But one day you will wake up and there won’t be any more time to work on the things you’ve always wanted to do. And at that point you either will have achieved the goals you set for yourself, or you will have a list of excuses for why you haven’t.
We have less time than we think we do in our lifetime and we have more time in each and every day than we realize.
How much time do we waste every single day?
If you are like me, tomorrow is always a good time to start yet tomorrow never comes. There is always another tomorrow. The problem with today is it quickly turns into yesterday.
