If there’s one thing I’ve learnt in life it’s don’t wait. Don’t put off tomorrow, what can be done today.
Of course though, it’s never that easy, is it?
It’s a time versus tasks issue.
I think we can all appreciate just how time flies and also just how busy modern life is.
Despite being in my 50’s now, and especially as I don’t feel anywhere near that (apart from the odd ache!), I look back and think where has that time gone!
One minute I’m picking my kids up in my arms, and the next thing, they are picking me up in their car!
We are all continually multi tasking, balancing and juggling between many elements, it’s easy to procrastinate.
They say Procrastination is the thief of time. I can relate to that, and definitely feel that’s been me along the way.
I find I have waves of productivity, which I think is pretty human for a busy life.
I can remember in my fathers office there was an A4 photocopy of a circle and it was labelled ‘Tuit’.
Intrigued I read further and of course it was in description, a round tuit. As in, “I will get ‘around to it!!’
This was from the 1970’s so perhaps this wasn’t just a modern disease?
I feel quite happy with my achievements thus far but there’s still many things I’d like to accomplish on my bucket list.
I think whilst it’s obviously important’ to focus ahead and plan, we can however sometimes miss big chunks of our life, by not being ‘in the moment.’
I’ve learnt that whilst we look ahead to the next ‘event’ in our lives, we can miss the bulk of what makes up the rest!
I’ve been guilty to this but I’ve realised how important it is to live in the moment and appreciate all the little details as you go along.
This quote I found encapsulates it exactly ;
“We wait, starving for moments of high magic to inspire us, but life is full of common enchantment waiting for our alchemists eyes to notice.”
So plan and achieve but above all enjoy the journey whilst noticing all the little details.
With these thoughts i now leave you.
