Why You Must Cultivate a Do-It-Now Attitude

If you’re going to make the contribution you were meant to make, you must realize this. You’re not here forever. It may seem obvious, but if you don’t keep this front of mind, you can get lulled by your daily routine and forget that you’re, in a sense, in a race against the clock.

So many people live as if they were here for 1000 years. Their whole stance is that they have an infinite amount of time to produce their work. And this isn’t true. When you think of it, in the grand scheme of things, a person’s start date and end date are not that far apart. It doesn’t mean that the time is too short; it just says that time is precious and thus, we must maximize every moment.

Get this. You have a sliver of time to make your difference. You’ve waited long enough. Now, you must take action. Your time isn’t coming; it’s now. You didn’t decide to be born in this generation, but you are. Therefore, there’s no other time for you; this is it.

If you keep delaying your goals and dreams, you’ll get to a point when they expire. In that sense, procrastination is your enemy. More specifically, when it comes to contributing and taking care of yourself, it can be disastrous; at one point, you look back over your life with tears of regret because you missed your opportunity to contribute as much as you could have and experience life to the fullest.

Achievers have a bias for action. They don’t needlessly postpone their goals and dreams; they act on them. Achievers have developed a sense of urgency; they value their time and seek to make the most of it. For them, if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing as soon as possible.

If you’re reading this, it means your door of opportunity is still open to you. But you must seize it and cultivate a do-it-now attitude. Up until now, you may not have been playing full out. But it’s not too late for you to get back in the game and make the most of the gift of life.
