"Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week."
~ Spanish Proverb
Too often we postpone taking action. We procrastinate. We decide that we don't have time today to do what needs to be done. We postpone relaxation or happiness for vacation or retirement. We postpone telling a loved one how important they are until it is too late. We think we will be successful tomorrow--when some special project is completed or some award has been earned. The problem is that we postpone living a full and satisfying life. And tomorrow never comes...
This week: Identify something you have been postponing, something you have put off until "tomorrow." DECIDE that you are going to take an action to accomplish it TODAY--maybe just some small action. Then, each day take another small action. You will find yourself slowly and steadily building momentum until your project is completed or until you have begun living in the present moment instead of postponing being satisfied until some far off "tomorrow."
