Are you living in the FUTURE or are you living in the NOW?
I have this habit of thinking about what I want in my life and then thinking “In the future I’m going to have, do, be etc” whatever it is that I’m thinking about. I realized that I need to align me NOW with FUTURE me.
If there is something I want to have or do or be in the future I need to work on it NOW. It is not just going to materialize because I want it to.
When I started thinking about this website I knew what I wanted it to look like. I had it all planned out in my mind. I found the perfect theme to use. The only problem? It was a premium theme and I didn’t have the money to buy it. I kept thinking, “Next month I’ll have the money to purchase my theme, next pay period that will be the first thing I buy.” But you know how real life or in this case teenagers interfere with mom’s plans. I just decided enough. I’ll find something that will work. So that is what I did. I found a theme that is free. I googled how to customize it. I put in the work. I had a plan of action.
Is it perfect? No. Is it exactly what I had in my mind? No. But do I have a website? Yes. Can I put my content out into the world for fabulous people like you? YES!
Don’t let perfection stop you. Don’t let not having what you think you need stop you. Just start where you are. Start with what you have and what you can do and build from there.
You have to put in the work. You have to have a plan. The time is now.
What do you keep putting off for the future? What can you start on now?
