I hear it a lot. “Someday we’ll move.” “Oh, someday I’ll start that business.” “I’ll get to it someday, but I just don’t have the time right now.” So many people in my life are constantly dreaming about a better future filled with doing things they’re passionate about, but they never seem to get any of their dreams off the ground.
I’ve taken a lot of career risks for only being twenty-five. Quitting a “stable” job to pursue a career in sticker making isn’t exactly logical, but I’m not going to become someone who lives for “someday.” And neither should you.
Alex loves the saying, “The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago, the next best time is today.” I’m not saying to quit your day job or achieve your goal in a day, but I think it’s important to actually start working towards your goals rather than just talking about them.
Because at the end of the day, it matters more to you whether or not you’ve done anything you’ve talked about, than it does to me. The same goes with my friends and family. You’re responsible for how your life ends up and if you’re not interested in reading a list of regrets at the end of it, I suggest you start now.
So turn someday into today. Start working on that novel you’ve talked about writing, or start that YouTube channel. Start doing research on opening your own brick and mortar or start taking dance classes. Let’s all vow to stop being those people who are constantly dreaming and never bothering to work towards those dreams. Even if it’s only a little forward progress each day, at least you’re moving.
