This poster hit me like a meteorite (but without the enormous crater and dinosaur extinction):
Such a simple concept, but oh so powerful!
I don’t know about you, but I find it very easy to get caught up in day-to-day needs and desires and to-do lists, and lose sight of the little fact that I’ll (hopefully) still be here in 10 or 20 or 30 or even 50 years…
but I don’t want to be right ‘here’ then…
I want to have moved on and done great things…
which isn’t going to happen unless I actually DO some things now…
All this doesn’t necessarily require grand gestures. Small steps work too. Dreaming big is all well and good; planning is fantastic; but nothing quite beats ACTUALLY DOING STUFF! [emphasis to remind myself 😉 ]
What small things can you commit to today to help out your future self?
Pick one or two and get to work!
My ‘small things’ for the moment are
- commit to doing some dance practice every day
- do at least one thing every day to help move my career/work life forward. Today that involved reading through the ProBlogger jobs board. I have made a short list of simple things to do to help #2 along, and I’ll keep refreshing that as I work through it.
Please share your ‘small things’ here or on the Facebook page: that way we can cheer each other along.
And feel free to remind me about mine… but right now I need to dance a bit 🙂
