It’s a word that’s ripe with promise. It feels shiny and new. There’s so much that can be accomplished… tomorrow.
Now, I’m not an expert on overcoming procrastination. In fact, I’m just as good at procrastinating as you are (and maybe even better!). And I’m all too familiar with the seduction that tomorrow holds.
- Or this weekend.
- Or next week.
- Or in the spring.
Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING has made its appearance. It’s almost Halloween and we can already feel the slide into The Holidays – that time when we feel that we’re in limbo and everything has to wait until … AFTER.
After Fall Break. After Halloween. After Veteran’s Day. After Thanksgiving. After holiday shopping. After the kids go back to school. After. After. After.
The weeks between Christmas and New Year’s? It’s a limbo period on the calendar. When one year is winding down and the next looms on the horizon, fresh with promise of a new beginning.
It’s all too easy to put your dreams on hold – waiting for the New Year. It’s all too easy to write off the rest of 2019 – and in fact the rest of the DECADE – and forget about a more powerful word:
More immediate than even today, NOW is a word of power.
It says that your message matters – now. And that you’re going to take the wonderful steps to start to craft your message – now.
The only time we all have is Now. Don't wait to write your book. #amwriting Click To TweetYou’re not going to wait for the tantalizing promise of tomorrow, next week, next year, next decade.
Because tomorrow, while shiny and new and exciting is also so easy to wait for. To let it creep up softly and then… have the time slip away just as softly, just as easily.
And nothing is worse than looking backward into time at all the yesterdays that weren’t used up. At the weeks and months and years that have passed between idea and action – even if you’re dabbling along the way.
Especially at the turning of a decade.
Please make the decision with me, now, today, that you’re going to work on your book NOW. That you’re not going to wait for the “tomorrow” of New Years, or January, or Spring – when “you’ll have more time”.
The only time we all have is Now.
Because, trust me, you’ll be just as busy after New Year’s, or in January, or in Spring as you are in this moment. Busy will fill your life to full. And really, that’s okay. It really is. Because you’re not going to wait for life to fill up – you’re going to write right now.
Here’s the action I want you to do – right now – is to jump on the phone with me to learn about the upcoming “Finally Write Your Book VIP Writing Mentorship” that is starting… now.
There is still time in 2019. Let’s make it count – and move toward your dreams.
