Now is Exactly the Right Time
You’ve probably heard the saying the goes like this: “The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
I like that saying, because it reminds me that while I can’t change the past, now is exactly the right time for me to get started on (or continue working on) the things I want to do.
Financially, this means that I can start out each day by asking myself what I can do to move forward.
Saving money and investing is important to me, so I can move a little money toward those items — or at the very least I can ask myself whether what I’m about to buy is worth it before spending money.
It also means that I don’t need to keep actively kicking myself about that $1000 that I spent unwisely years ago, or about the time I withdrew money from my 401k.
Instead, I can focus on now. Now is exactly the right time — and the best time.
