If you gave a fleeting thought to the world ending on 21st December, what did you think about? Was there something you needed to do before this happened? Was there something you really wanted to do? Express your gratitude to someone. Do something challenging. Achieve a goal that has been elusive up ’til now.
Let’s assume that when you read this, the world hasn’t ended. Why now go back over what you thought about doing and do it anyway. Express the gratitude. Do something challenging. Pursue the goal. In fact, you could start to live as if then end of the world is around the corner. You could live your life as if it it not guaranteed to last forever. You could live in the present. Of course, you need to plan but you could spend much more of your focus in the present. Look back to learn and do it fleetingly. Look forward to plan but again, do it fleetingly. Focus on the immediate now. Don’t waste time waiting for opportunity to knock. Regret has a bitter taste. Just do it….now. Send the email. Write the letter. Book the trip. Start exercising. Call the person on the ‘phone. Now is all you’ve got.
Make 2013 your best year ever but start now.
