if not now, when?

December 20, 2016

Pause for a minute and re-read the title of this blog: If not now, when?  What comes to your mind as you say (or think) that statement?   I’m going to guess that whatever comes to mind when you hear that phrase, is the thing you need to take action in your life and do.  For some it might be something big and life changing.  For others it might be something small, but no less important.

If you aren’t going to eat the bacon which makes you happen now, when will you start?  If you don’t start being intentional about planning and using your vacation days now, when will that happen?  If you don’t start spending more time with the people that are important to you, when are you going to do that?  If you don’t start blogging more frequently this week, when will you start?  If you aren’t going to start going to more concerts now, when will you?  If you don’t make plans today to have drinks with a friend, when will you send that text or email and make it happen?

I don’t mean to suggest that life is a free for all, that we can just do whatever we want, whenever we want.  But I’d say that 99% of the people I know have things in their life that they don’t do, but that on some level they think they might do in the future.  The things they say “someday” about.  The problem is that “someday”, tends to turn into never.  It’s okay to have a clear plan for something happening in a month, year or 10 years in the future.  But in many cases, we just think in terms of “someday”.

You can start something now, today and not wait for “someday”.  Because if you start today your life is one step closer to the vision in your head.  Doing it now, will change your life.  But if you aren’t going to today, when will you?  If not now, when?
