The Right Time is Right Now
You’ve probably heard of the phrase: “The right time is right now.” That’s because this phrase is not only famous (said by Casey Neistat), but because it’s true.
It’s Easier Said than Done
There’s no doubt about it – saying “the right time is right now” is easier said than done. To protect ourselves when there is something that we want to do, we often tell ourselves, “I’ll do this next year,” or, “I’m so busy now, but in a few months, I’ll have the time,” or “Maybe when the kids move out…”
It is important to recognize that every reason you give yourself for not doing what you want to do is an excuse. We make excuses to protect ourselves from the fear of failure, from the fear of the unknown and from being uncomfortable with change.
If You Want to Do it, Do It
There are people who travel. Who learn new languages. Who move to a farm for a few months. Who decide they want to learn to dance the Tango. Who start their own business. Who do a number of very interesting, fulfilling, and perhaps even life-changing things. Guess what? You can do what you want to do, too. Sure, be realistic – if you’ve never studied medicine and you’re not good at math, you’re probably not going to be a doctor. However, if a dream is within reach, don’t keep putting it off. The right time is right now.
What have you always wanted to do? Why haven’t you done it yet?
