Are you a procrastinator?
Do you have a long list of things you plan to do today but never quite get round to.
I stumbled across a great new word this morning on Twitter.
To defer until the day after tomorrow; to postpone for a day
I might set up a company called that one day. Not today obviously, that would be mad.
Anyway, if you knew your time was up what would you really want to do?
I read a powerful piece in The Telegraph today about the legend that is Mohammed Ali. The Greatest fighter to ever live.
He is quoted saying: "I believe that when you die and go to heaven God won't ask you what you've done but what you could've done."
Put aside religion, I quite like the sentiment.
What's stopping you doing something you really want to do?
Really stopping you.
Step through the fear my friends. Just feckin do it.
We have a phrase at work, born out of some business theory or other, that you should worry most about the bits you can control.
Worrying about stuff you can only influence a bit, or have no control over is futile. But we all do it.
My brother who works in A&E as a doctor has another more humbling phrase. 'No-one died today did they.'
Work has been tough recently. Really tough. Things haven't all gone to plan. In fact it feels like I've let people down.
I can post rationalise why we are where we are. It mainly involves blaming other people or circumstances out of my control.
But nobody has died.
So today I make this commitment to you, I'm going to do something today that normally I'd put off until overmorrow.
You'll have to come back tomorrow to find out what it was.
