Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
Wayne Dyer

Like many people, I was saddened by the recent, much too early death of Rik Mayall.  He had been a great part of my growing up years and was only a year older than me.  It makes one pause.

I have been working with several clients recently who have all been putting things off.  They are waiting of the right time, the right circumstances, the right skills, the right …. well, we all do it so put in your reason here for not doing the thing you really want to do.

There are some cases when it isn’t the right time: don’t drive a racing car at 100mph before you have had lessons; don’t jump out of a plane if you have left your parachute at home; don’t go swimming in the middle of a shark feeding frenzy.  

Obviously I am being flippant, but so often we put things in our way which might seem sensible but which are only obstacles because we say they are.  Often, these are barriers which can be overcome (I have written about this before.)

Think about something you really want to do, whether it is a change of career, moving to a new location, going on safari or learning the oboe.  Instead of thinking about doing it, I invite you to come at it from a different angle.  Think about not doing it.  Think about reaching the end of your life, which could be in 50 years or … who knows when …. and not having done that thing you really want to do.  If it doesn’t worry you, then as you were.

If it upsets you to think of not achieving your ambition, then what is the first action you can take to make it happen?  Read a book, pick up a brochure, book a plane ticket...

Whatever that first action is, take it.  Now.

If this has struck a chord with you and you want to find out if coaching will support you, check out how we could work together and get in touch.
