Well, I’m sure you’ve heard this before. The End of the World is coming. Sometime in the next couple of weeks I suppose. The asteroid is coming, or the zombies will rise. The seas will flood and the earth will open spewing forth its molten core until the only things that survive are cockroaches and Twinkies….
Wait, what?!? You’re telling me Twinkies are already on the endangered species list! Maybe those Mayans WERE on to something.
Anyway, let’s say for a minute (or maybe 5, I haven’t decided how long this post will be yet) that those Yokels from the Yucatan were correct. We only have 8 more days to live. How do you spend them? Do you turn to your deepest darkest desires and give in to the evil that lurks in each and every one of us? Or do you turn to your….shallowest…lightest…ahh, never mind that’s a bad metaphor.
How about this. What would be the last thing you want to do in this life? What statement do you want to make to end the story that is you? Are there things that you’ve always wanted to do and haven’t? Well, 8 days isn’t THAT long, but I’m sure you can get some of those things accomplished.
The deeper question here is why haven’t you done them already? Money? Time? Both very valid reasons. Also, both of those reasons are able to be met. You can make time and money. Maybe not very fast, but it can happen if you really want it.
Do you really want it? Why wait for the end of the world? Take charge now and make it happen. Make a plan and see it through. Don’t wait for an ultimatum to make your wishes come true.
There’s still time! Maybe 8 days, maybe 8 years, maybe 80 years. But it all starts today. The day you start making plans is the day you start realizing your dreams. Stop waiting, start doing. Make that your motto for the new year. You’ll be amazed at how many things you can accomplish.
