My first roommate (the sane one) at Temple University wanted to be a nurse. One day she was not feeling well and went to the campus clinic. She was seen by a doctor who felt the need to dispense some advice along with her medicine. The doctor felt my roommate should become a doctor instead of a nurse and pointed out to my roommate that while doctors have to go to school longer than nurses the time will pass anyway. My roommate went on to become the nurse she wanted to be. But that doctor’s advice, passed on to me through my roommate, never left me.
The time will pass anyway. There will always be 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day, 365 days in a year, and so on and so on. Therefore, so what if it takes a long time. The time will pass anyway. Whatever It is that you are not doing because It will take too long, just get to it. In 10,080 minutes, a week will have passed. You could have been working on you goal for 1 week or you can still be saying It will take to long. The week will have passed either way.
Time is the constant we all have in common. It does not change. Time feels like it is dragging sometimes and sometimes it feels as thought its flying. But in reality it is passing at the same rate all the time. So, the choice is yours. Over the next day, week, month, year, or even decade you can spend your time improving your diet, exercising, losing weight, cutting back on bad habits, quiting smoking, working on your business idea, going to school, paying off your debt, saving your money, Chasing Joy, or working on any other goal you may have. Or, over the next day, week, month, year, or decade you can do nothing, maintain the status quo and continue to say It will take too long. Either way, the time will pass. I chose to spend time working on my goals and Chasing Joy.
Where will you be when the time passes, healthier, out of debt, a business owner, happier????
