…the art of keeping up with yesterday.
…the thief of time.
Think about them. Are you keeping up with yesterday? What did you want to do yesterday, last week, last month or last quarter that’s still not done? How many of us aren’t even finished with 2007, yet?
Have you ever spent five minutes, five hours or five days finding ways to avoid doing something that needed doing? Did you ever get that time back? GONE! STOLEN! the thief of time.
How many opportunities have you missed because you put it off until yomorrow? How many have taken advantage of opportunities that should have been yours? How many opportunities are gone forever? Dead! Assassinated!
So, here’s my point. Today is the last day that you can procrastinate until tomorrow. Tomorrow, you can only procrastinate until next year. Do you really want to do that? Maybe you should do it today, so that tomorrow you’ll be able to get a head start on next year.
If I made you feel bad, it wasn’t my intention. Rather, I want everyone to know that we all fight the same demons. We all have the same 365 days and the same 24 hours a day. Some of us get better results by doing the right things at the right time.
Finish up this year as best you can. Look forward to a happy and prosperous new year in 2009 and if you want my help, ask for it.
