“I met an old man in a bus on my way back to the University a few years ago. He looked scraggy, finished but interestingly talk active.
He sat next to me, I told him my dreams. We had a great time.
And when I was about to leave, he said to me “Son, look at me, look at you, I had great plans for today just a few yesterdays (years) ago too.
I was once like you, but don’t be like me. The only thing that can make a difference between the both of us in a few years lies in what we choose to do with our time, everyday.
He said something profound, he said, “When your youth and your now is a blunder, it leads to an adulthood of struggle and an old age of regret”. Immediately I got off that bus in 2007, I wrote this article below. Let me share it with you.
Are we moving forward? Do we live 365 days in a year or are we living a day, 365 times?
There’s a difference.
The clock is ticking. Think about this, for every morning we wake up alive, we have one less day to live.
For every time we breathe, we are one breadth short of life. What can you do better now to move forward?
Right now, you’re the oldest you’ve ever been, and the youngest you’ll ever be. All we have is the power, the power of now, make good use of it.
Do not procrastinate. Do.
Put your best daily and you’d deliver the future. In the words of Fela Durotoye, “The future is not just a place in time. It’s everything you were created to do but haven’t done, it’s all you can be but haven’t yet become”.
A goal is almost the same as a dream. But a goal is a dream with a set deadline.
Make your goals S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound).
What’s your target and time frame to achieve?
In the words of John Legend, “the future started yesterday, we are almost late”. Go further ahead.
Use the power of now. Deliver excellently.”
It’s a wrap!
