Why excuses? Not only we suck at time management and productivity skills but it’s a lie. We do have time. We’d just rather spend hours on Facebook than do something uncomfortable. In fact, our time’s limited. In Morocco, I often hear a popular saying: ‘God’s days are long’ in other words, if not today, there will be plenty of other days. I recently came to realize that this isn’t true… How?
My two-month-old baby’s newborn clothes don’t fit him anymore. Prior to giving birth, I had purchased and received a ton of newborn clothes from everywhere. Different garments for different occasions. Today, my son cannot wear these clothes anymore. This is a pure indication that time passes and there’s no going back. The baby’s journey is even more deep as he’s started from nothing, just an embryo, to becoming this 5-kg baby only in a few months.
I don’t mean to stress out because I am getting old (er) or because time is going by. But this is, to me, a wake-up call that if we keep postponing something in our lives, we may never find the ‘perfect time’ we’re looking for.
Our future is NOW. Our results are TODAY’s actions. Let’s not wait for that ‘day’ or ‘year’ to visit our loved ones, run our own businesses or travel the world and do the things that are important to us. Today’s the best time we’ll ever have.
While you reflect on that, I’ll go pack the baby’s clothes and find another one that’s ready to come to this world who can hopefully make use of them.
Best of luck to you all and hope you make the most out of the rest of this year!!
Let’s stay in touch and please comment below and tell me what you do to seize the day.
