According to the publishers of the Oxford English Dictionary, TIME is the number one noun in the English language. Our day to day lives are so dominated by time that we use the word TIME more than any other word. Time is your most treasured commodity because once you waste it; you can never get it back. Yet we tend to live our lives as if we had extra time stashed somewhere waiting for us. We put off projects, plan things for decades and literally postpone our lives till when a perfect time comes around for us to start living.
You may have noticed that as you get older, time seems to move faster. Days are shorter, you often run behind, and spend more time than ever before catching up. No matter how we perceive the passing of time, the fact is, that the clock is ticking. Every moment that you don’t get started, is a moment that passes you by. This is not to say you should always be busy, but isn’t it time to stop waiting for the perfect time?
Truth is, there is no such thing as a perfect time and it will never be. Right now you might be asking yourself, “When is the right time to start?” When is the right time to change your life, to chase your dream or to start on your goals? The answer is always the same… “Right now is the right time.”
You may say you are not ready. You might think that things will be easier if you wait. Or that you are waiting for a better, more convenient time. Yet, “the perfect time” is a myth. And you may run out of time if you delay.
Because you are not assured of later, later is never the right time to start. It’s always right now.
Right now launches new businesses.
Right now gets you in shape.
Right now gets you out of that toxic relationship.
Right now beats the deadline.
Right now moves you one step to your goals.
You might think you’ll have more time later, but right now gets the work done.
Stop putting things off. There won’t be a “better” or “easier” time. Not later. Not tomorrow. Not when the stars align. If you wait, you may be too late. The right time is always right now.
