Today is the day.
I just posted this on my blog and thought the note from dax was worth sharing!
Today is the day.
How many times have we heard this growing up?
So much meaning crammed into those 4 little words.
"Today is the day" covers a lot of ground.
First day of school, the day my dad goes in for surgery, my best friend's birthday, the day my dog died, the day I was diagnosed, our wedding anniversary, the day I start my new diet, we go on vacation, etc...
For different people the day represents something totally different, yet remarkably the same. We all have 365 days that are ours to spend however we choose this year. In 2008 we only have 175 days left.
So my question is...what are we going to do with them? How will we spend them? I just read an email that I thought I'd share with you, I found it really motivational. I hope you do to...:)
"Much may be done in those little shreds and patches of time which
every day produces, and which most men throw away. "
- Charles Caleb Colton
How true that quote is huh?
Most of us go through life 'putting off until tomorrow' again and
again and again thinking that they have all the time in the world
to get what they want from life, yet in doing so they're literally
throwing away great chunks of their life.
Chunks that they'll never get back.
It's been said that a great life is merely a series of great years,
that a great year is but a series of great month, that a great
month is but a series of great weeks and that, ultimately a great
week is nothing more than 7 great days strung together.
Achieving a great life sounds simple when you think of it that way
Yet it's so easy to fall into the habit of living this principle in
reverse, stringing together bad days into bad weeks, into bad
months into bad years and then looking back with regret on a
lifetime that feels like it's been wasted.
Don't make this mistake. It's not too late to really
make a difference and achieve something amazing with the 175 days
that are left of 2008.
175 days could see you a lot fitter than you are now, a lot
healthier, a lot wealthier. It could see you become an author, starting your own business, traveling to far flung places or any other number of wonderful things.
But you've got to start, my friend. Don't waste another day.
Your life depends upon it!
Truth, joy and love
Well that's it. So what are you going to do today? Game on!!
