One of our biggest mistakes as human beings is hesitation. The fear of failure or embarrassment. The lack of motivation. The inability to commit. Just any form of hesitation that prevents you from living your life. You were given a life. Whether God gave it to you, your mother, or some scientific process, you still have a life, so don’t waste it.
There is a phrase that I hear in Spanish all the time… no dejes para mañana lo que se puede hacer hoy (don’t leave for tomorrow what can be done today). In other words, make each day count toward something. Do anything! Anything that will get you closer to your dreams, happiness, or any form of progress. You will be amazed at how much of a change you will notice by doing at least one productive thing a day. And the best part is productivity doesn’t have to entail work. Productivity can mean actually working out or finally starting that book you’ve always wanted to write.
Already being productive? Then, enjoy yourself a little bit. Dedicate a night to being with your friends. Go out on a date with that special someone. Splurge a little bit on a mini vacation. It’s ok to have fun. Don’t limit your life to work, school, and home. A life like that is going to have very little room for growth and change. Trust me when I say that 9 times out of 10 you will regret not having gone out.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to do your work because you already failed your classes or got fired, but don’t put off a much needed good time because at the end of the day it’s gonna be you that gets burnt out. Remember that it’s your life and only you can live it to its fullest. Nobody wants to look back at their life from the same place they were a year ago.
