In The Moment: Now vs. Later

Never put off today what you can do tomorrow!

Wait, that doesn’t sound right, does it? [Give me a minute to search for the right quote.]

“Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.” Thomas Jefferson

I’ve written about procrastination before (or I planned to). In my own life, I see that if I don’t act, I lose everything. Blog posts is a a great example. I will “get” an idea for a blog post and then put if off. When I cycle back to it, it’s lost.

The other thing about acting “in the moment” is you don’t have fear. Ok, maybe I am talking about myself but when I have a great idea, in the moment, it makes sense. I can see how it can work. I know what needs to be done. I’m ready to sell it to the powers that be, whoever that is. But it works. When I give that idea time to marinate, all the other junk that will stop me creeps in.

I’m pledging to try a different approach. When I have an idea, especially one supported with enthusiasm by great people in my life, I’m going to act. I’m going to take that idea and lay down the groundwork for action and success.

I’ll be sure to keep you updated on my progress. Or not 😉
