Stop Procrastinating and Do It Now!!!

“Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows.” – Michael Landon

One of the things I have learned in life is that if you want to do something, you should not wait. You cannot wait until the perfect time to get married, have children, build your business, or anything else it is that you want out of your life.

Years ago, I was waiting in the reception area of an office when I overheard a conversation between the receptionist and one of the women who work in the office. Apparently, the receptionist had been married for a while and was telling the woman how much she wanted to have a baby, but they were waiting until everything in their life was perfect. The other woman looked at her and said, “If you wait until everything is perfect, you’ll never have children.”

How many of us are waiting until everything is perfect before we start building our businesses? We want our website just right, or we want our Facebook pages to be perfect. We want to investigate the company some more and know our business backward and forward before we go out and tell others about it.

You cannot procrastinate and wait for perfection because perfection will never happen. Life is messy. Problems come up. Cash flow gets tight. Mistakes happen.

Do your best to educate yourself and whenever you find yourself procrastinating about doing something that will help you toward your goals, self-motivate by saying the words, “Do it now!”

If I wait too long in the mornings, I can procrastinate my morning run until finally I say, “It’s too late in the day, I’ll just skip it today.” Then I feel horrible. However, when that little voice inside starts saying, “Running for 40 minutes this morning? Wouldn’t it be so much nicer to sit in this comfy chair and enjoy another cup of coffee?” I get up, put on my running gear and head out the door.

Don’t listen to that inner voice telling you to wait on working on your goals. Do not wait until the perfect time to start your business or that exercise regime.

Do it now! I promise, you won’t regret it!
