Why? To challenge myself. To see how long it would take. Because I can.
So why haven’t I done it yet” That’s the question. The question I had no decent answer for.
So I did it!. Early on a recent Sunday morning (well before I told myself the washing was more important), I grabbed my shoes, queued a playlist and headed down the hill.
The kids were fascinated, chorussing behind me that it was too steep and they didn’t think I’d make it.
And you know what, I did make it all the way down and all the way back up. It was a spectacular walk, I saw views of the hinterland I don’t get in the car.
But you know what else, after taking that final sweaty step home I felt ready to conquer anything (well anything on my ‘some day’ list at least).
So riding my wave of achievement I boarded a train to Brisbane last week to meet my sister, another of my ‘I want to dos’ since moving here.
I’ve been to Brisbane a few times, but always by car. I wanted to experience the train so why hadn’t I done it yet? Again that question.
Clearly I’m not talking about holding off on ground breaking expeditions or monumental overseas trips. I’ve been holding off on simple everyday tasks that I’m more than capable of doing.
I’m postponing life, my life until later.
So I’m curious, whats one thing you want to do and haven’t done yet?
What are you holding back on, even though you know you’d be okay if you did it?
What’s getting in the way of pursuing what interests you, challenges you, lights you up?
What simple everyday things would give your life a boost? Start here….
Because, once you do that one thing you’ve been putting off, you’ll be riding the wave of success.
And that one thing will lead to another.
You’ll gather momentum and do more, and then more.
Soon you’ll be thriving on achievement, instead of wallowing in procrastination.
So, that thing you want to do, go do it. And then the next.
Why? Because this is your life and I want you to live it well.
