Where does the time go?
I mean it was just January and I was just talking about how this year was going to be one for the books. Now, it’s already almost halfway through.
Time really does fly.
I still remember turning 21, and now here I am recently celebrating my 26th birthday. What did I do in that time?
Time is really special. I can’t get enough of it, so I have to value the time that I do have. And truth be told, I don’t know how good a job I’m doing at that.
I’ve made all these plans for this year and I’m not even sure where I stand with them. I’ve made all these plans for my life and I’m not sure how that’s going. How many books did I want written by now? How many people should I have visited by now? How much money should I have saved by now? How many pounds should I have lost by now?
I must admit, I have gotten stagnate. Stagnate is not good. It never is. Stagnate gets in the way of progression. And anything that gets in the way of progression is regression. And as embarrassed as I am about this, I feel like I need to share it. I feel like someone else may be looking back at the time they have spent so far and wondering the same thing. I’m right there with you friend.
So now what do we do?
Now, I think we acknowledge our problem. Look back over those goals we set for the year. Pick up where we left out. And pedal to the metal from here on. We let nothing get in the way of further progress. Not even ourselves. OK?
Consider this my note of accountability because it is my responsibility to achieve more. It is my duty to succeed. And I will.
Today is a day to remember. Today is a day I call myself out. Today is the day that I do what I’ll wish I had done if I wait until tomorrow. Today I live like there is no tomorrow because there just might not be.
