I hate to admit it, but Nike had it right. Just do it. I can't recommend their shoes, but that tagline is brilliant. These days, people seem to spend so much time thinking about doing it, researching it, enjoying the idea of...it. But so few people actually pull the trigger and do it. WHATEVER IT IS. It could be waking up earlier, exercising consistently, eating healthier, being nicer to their spouse and kids, looking for a new job, going to church, starting a side hustle, saving more money, taking a vacation, starting a blog, forgiving someone...all of those things worthy and good but we all come up with excuses to not do it. It's not the right time. It's too hard. I'm too tired. The situation isn't perfect. Those excuses grow in a mealy soil of fear and laziness.
The idea of change is exciting and we hear about other people who have done what we would like to but implementation is where we fall short. We stay in that orbit of thinking and planning - listening to the right podcast, reading the right books and blogs, writing out "a plan" and then 6 months, 1 year, 2 years later, we're no closer to accomplishing our goal. I hear time and again from very successful people that the reason they have accomplished so much is simply because they took the initiative to do something. They didn't wait for someone else to do it or spend years thinking about it, they actually started the process. And, admittedly, many times they failed. But then they learned from that and did it again...but better this time. It takes will power, focus and determination - not excuses, laziness and fear.
So, I encourage you, whatever your "it" is - go now, get started, be willing to fail and then be willing to fail again until you arrive at the other side and look, you did IT. Otherwise, you'll walk the same overtrodden path of dull regret. Life is short, make sure you live IT.
