Wherever you are, start today.

Lately I’ve been thinking about time.

How quickly it passes…How slow it goes… And no matter how we spend it, it just keeps ticking by.

I know what you’re thinking, “Whoa. Heather. That’s pretty introspective.”

And it has everything to do with me turning 40 this month.

It’s true – time stops for no one.

So what the hell are we waiting for!?

Hugh Laurie quote

You.  Me?  Anybody.  Why do we put things off?

Whether we’re ready or not to do something, two things are certain: fear and the passage of time.

I think about how much time has passed since I left my corporate job and started my own business.  In truth, it’s taken me longer to get here than I would have liked but, then again, there’s nothing I would have rather done!

While change may not happen overnight, it does happen when you take action.

So what do you want to change?

Want to lose weight? You won’t wake up thinner tomorrow just because you decided you wanted to be. You’ve got to take action like:

  • Eating healthier
  • Moving more
  • Skipping dessert
  • Drinking more water
  • And so on…

Over time all these little things add up, and the weight comes off.

Here’s another example. Let’s say you want to leave your corporate job and start your own business but, because of fear and doubt, you sit on the idea for years.  Guess what?  Time passes and nothing changes. (Except now you’re older and more cynical.)

Here’s the truth: fear is going to exist and time is going to pass no matter what.  So get over it.  Stop waiting to do what you want to do!

  • Decide what type of business you want to create
  • Talk to people who’ve already done it
  • Creating a timeline to transition out of your old job

Just. Start.

Whatever it is you want to change in your life, health, relationships, or career take the first step – even if it’s not the right step – because taking action and getting started will produce it’s own insight.

Remember, you can’t steer a car unless it’s in motion. So start from wherever you are today.
