The Power Of Now

Today is not tomorrow. Today is now and today is passing you by as you read this post.

Sure, we can mourn all we want for the time we lost last week, or dream about how productive the next month is going to be.

…but how is that going to help you?

Let’s face it: what about now?

Want to write a book? Right now you can write one page.

Creating a new set of paintings? What if you started thumbnailing today?

Maybe you can practice your drawing fundamentals in the morning if you get up one hour earlier.

And then repeat it. Develop the habit. Sit down to work even if you don’t feel like it. If you only have 30 minutes per day, that’s 3.5 hours a week.

…isn’t that better than nothing?

The best things in your life take a lot of effort. If you really want it, all you have to do is start. Don’t wait for the perfect time or for the stars to align. That’s not going to happen.

Take control.

I know you can do it.

Dream big. Start small. But most of all… start.”

Simon Sinek

    I read this… then pulled out my sketchbook and started thumbnailing right now on the Lyft ride back home!

    …I’d write more, but I’ve got things to do… 😀 ❤️
