Gone in 30 seconds… 30 years…

OK, I have a test – a very
very simple test.

I’d like you to sit there for 30 seconds.

1 one thousand

2 one thousand

3 one thousand

4 one thousand

5 one thousand

6 one thousand

7 one thousand

8 one thousand

9 one thousand

10 one thousand

10 one thousand

Do you know what I did in that 30 seconds
that you were counting ?
I poured myself a glass of egg nog.
(half milk & half egg nog to be exact
- because that’s the way I like it)

Now I could have sat here with you and counted,
but since I knew the 30 seconds was going to be there
I figured I’d do something useful instead of just letting the time slip by.

You have no idea how long
I’ve wanted to share that with you.
(No, not the egg nog part – FOCUS !)

You see, 30 seconds was going to come and go
regardless of what I did – or did not do.

So will 30 minutes, 30 hours, 30 days,
30 weeks, 30 months, and 30 years.

Now, you don’t have to tell me this
- but what things have you always
wanted to do and just didn’t have
the time, money, know-how, etc. ?

And – will you still be saying this
in 3 years… and 30 years ??

That’s like me wanting to play the piano.
I’ve wanted to play the piano
since I was in elementary school.
30 years have come and gone,
and my love for the piano remains;
yet my skill and ability to play
are the same as when I was 8.

Really, people – the time it takes for you
to learn, experience and do ANYTHING
is going to pass whether you do something
or nothing at all toward it’s achievement.

Don’t just let it slip by…

Push aside your excuses and actually DO something
that will get you just that much closer to achievement.

I did.

You’re reading it now.

30 minutes.

Feels good :)

So, What are you waiting for ???
