Just Do It

"How to be Smarter: You’re not getting any younger. If you want to write a book, you better start today. If you love someone, you better tell them now. If you want to be healthier, put down those sweets in your hand. Whatever you’re afraid to do, it’s certainly not going to be easier to start tomorrow."

The last line of this entry is what really hooked me. I kind of love how simple it is, and yet how often do we convince ourselves that the opposite is true! Putting things off never made them any easier; if anything, it makes them harder because we've had time to worry about them and build them up in our heads. If there's something you have to do, just do it.

I totally agree with this statement. So many times I've told myself I'd do something later only to never do it, though I thought about it all day. On the other hand when I've just buckled down and done something, it's done, I don't have to dread not doing it all day. It's amazing how many times I need to learn that lesson though :)
