"Someday" Isn't a Day of the Week

Here's one piece of good advice I've gained from my many years of experience from living on this Earth: if you need to get something done, do it today. Better yet, if you can, start doing it now.

If it's something that you SHOULD be doing and that you COULD be doing, then right now, in the present, is the best time to start moving.

You could procrastinate and wait until tomorrow to get it started. I get it. You're busy. You've had a long day. You have responsibilities and not all the time in the world. But if you start going down that route, you'll never start and definitely never get it done.

Here are some tips to get started:
1. Write down a specific plan, preferably broken down in stages
2. Make a deadline for yourself
3. Tell someone your plan/goal to help keep you accountable

Today is when it's going to get started; not someday. Someday is an abyss where dreams get lost. "Someday" will never be today.

It's the day that matters most because it's the day you have an opportunity to do something. Today is the day that turns future dreams into present reality. It's the day you get up and get started.
