As I’m sitting here thinking of what I want to write about today, I can clearly hear, “just do it!” As in, just start writing and the thoughts will come. The phrase “Just Do It!,” is more than just a slogan for Nike. In fact, it should be a mantra for those of us who spend our lives on the fence, never quite ready to make a decision.
We want to relocate, but we don’t know anyone in the new city. We want to lose weight, but that can wait until after the holidays. You want to leave a bad relationship, but the drama you know is more comfortable than the unknown. And so, although you know what you should do, you don’t. A month later, you don’t. A year later, you don’t, and before you know it years have passed and you are still in the same place you’ve always been.
I, as much as anyone have been guilty of this, but no more! It is time that we stop making excuses and just do it already! There have been several endeavors I have wanted to pursue and I’ve decided, I’m just going to do it. I may fail miserably, but I don’t care about failure more. I do care that I have already let too many years pass with me frozen by fear. I’m more than willing to travel this “just do it,” journey alone, but it would be great to have some company along the way.
Will you join me?
What are the ideas you’ve been too afraid to bring to life? What are you passionate about that you haven’t made time for? Are you afraid to do something new because you may fail? Now is the time. Just do it already! Welcome the failure and the fear, and then do it anyway. I, for one, am ready and willing to either fail or succeed, starting now.
