I recently became aware of a motivational website called The Daily Motivator. Written by Ralph Marston, this website provides a kind of daily philosophical pep talk that focuses on what is positive in life.
I liked Marston’s messages so much that I read his book, The Power of Ten Billion Dreams. One chapter especially spoke to me, and that is the topic of today’s post: From Someday to Now.
Many of us have dreams that we would like to pursue, but we put them off until the timing is better–the house is paid off, the kids are out of college, (insert your own reason here). Marston suggests that we move our dreams from someday to now. The key, he says, is taking action. There is always something we can do today to move us just a little bit closer to making that dream come true.
Weekend Retirement is an example of moving someday to now. You consciously arrange your schedule so you have all or part of every weekend to enjoy the kinds of activities you see yourself doing in retirement. You move chores to week nights or you outsource them. You can make plans weeks in advance because you are committed to keeping weekends for yourself.
What other ways have you found to move someday to now?
