Although it might not always feel like it, life is ridiculously short. It probably wouldn’t mean much or be worth much if it lasted forever. Because it’s so short, with the limited time that you have, I recommend creating something worthwhile, and if you dare, something amazing.
Think of your life as a major project, with a deadline. Every day, every week, month and year, you get the opportunity to either work on improving it, piece by piece, one section at a time or you can sit back and watch it corrode away.
That’s life. At some point, you have to be improving just to stay where you are.
At the end of it all, you will get to look at your project in its entirety, the life you’ve created, and how you will feel will depend on how good of a job you think you did compared to whatever standard you live by.
Regardless of the outcome, will you be satisfied knowing you did what you could or will you be filled with regret knowing you could’ve easily done a better job?
Life is too short to delay getting started. Forget New Years or your next birthday or whatever life event you’re waiting to occur. If there is something you want to do, to create, to experience in this life, start doing it NOW because whatever it is you’re waiting to happen before beginning might not ever happen. Then what? Squander your life away just waiting and waiting and waiting?
The deadline for this project is unknown. It can be due at ANY moment. So for the love of life, stop waiting and get started!
