Don’t Wait for Someday

Is there something you want to do someday? Maybe you want to buy a house, head down a new career path, or even take up a new hobby.

Whatever it is…what are you waiting for?

Don’t want for someday to get started on fulfilling your dreams — regardless of what they might be.

The thing about dreams is…

Dreams don’t become a reality until you start working on them and following through. You can let things like the trappings of everyday life delay you for way too long, or you can take a step each day — even if they are small steps — and “someday” will become now.

Suppose your dream is to buy a house of your own. Well, go ahead and start now. I’m not suggesting you run out and buy a house today, with no money down and no thought as to the hidden costs that might come along with doing so. But I am suggesting you get started today.

Now’s the time

In the case of the house example, getting started might mean opening a savings account at Digit and designating that your down payment fund. It could mean making a budget, or making a list of the steps you’d need to qualify, or even looking at prices to get an idea of what you’ll be aiming for. Then it means doing the next step, and the next.

No matter what your dream, there are any number of things you can do to get started. The important thing is to start.

And then to keep going.

Don’t let day-to-day life get in the way.

  • So true. You don’t want to get caught up in the YOLO mentality, but at the same time, you never really know how much time you have, so you can’t defer everything until later, because you have a lot of living to do right now.
