10 Things To Do Now, Not Later!

October 18th, 2011 | No Comments |

When you start adding on the years, you start to realize that life is EXTREMELY short! Sometimes I don’t feel there is enough time to accomplish all that I have planned to. I think the spark to this though process of mine was a conversation I overheard. They were talking about buying a home so that they could change it however they wanted to, instead of having to tip-toe around their landlord. Yet, they’re still hesitant.

I’ve been in those same shoes, but haven’t really been as hesitant. And that’s brought me some trouble a time or two, but I don’t ever regret doing it. Regardless of the outcome, if there’s something that I want to do or try, bottom line, I’m in and ready to go. Why waste so much time thinking about what could have happened or what might happen, just take action today and find out.

So here’s a list of ten things to do right now, not later:

Buy a home

Of course, do it when you are financially able to. Instead of wishing you had a place you could call home and make your own, some where you’re kids can come home to when they have families of their own, start now.

Go on vacation

I have heard horror stories of people who have YEARS of vacation time built up at work who have not had a vacation in over five years. What in the HECK are you thinking. Take your family on vacation! Your loved ones and the memories you have with them are what matters most. Go now!

Have a child.

You’re definitely not getting younger. You don’t want to be grandma or grandpa age when you’re kids need you the most! So what if you’re in college or at the start of your career. It all comes second to the joy you will experience with children.

Start that business

If you have a great business idea, put it to action. There will always be those who are skeptical. They’re they nay-sayers but you’re the visionary. Fear is just a figment of your imagination and a tool that destroys dreams. If you need help with a business plan, get with your local small business association. They’ll help you set one up for FREE! There’s no excuse. Get started now!

Ask him/her out or ask him/her to marry you.

You’ll never know unless you ask! Asking or not asking is the success and failure of everything. Life is too short to wonder what could have happened. Be bold, be yourself and go for it! The best relationships are based on communication….and asking is the start of that. Your marriage will be the single most important and influential decisions of your life. So get to it!

Serve others

I don’t know if you’ve figured it out yet, but serving others is one of the reasons we are here. All the gold, silver and money in the world won’t even buy a crumb in the restaurants of Heaven. Do unto others and you would have them do unto you.

Donate to your charity

If you’re financially able, donate something to the charity of your choice. If you’ve ever been in a tough spot, financially or physically, you’d appreciate a little help too.

Make a bucket list

A bucket list is a long, not short, but long list of things you would like to accomplish before the end. Whether it’s traveling to Rome or sky diving, if you want to do it, put it on the list. Start on #1 just as soon as it’s on the list and check them off one by one as you make it happen.

Get an education

If you want a better job, more knowledge or just the status a degree can bring, apply for college or start taking courses. you’re never too old. Jim Rohn once said that the best education is “Self  Education.” Always keep learning and educating yourself. He also said that a formal education will get you a job, but self education will make you a fortune. I couldn’t agree more!

Go to church

For most people, it’s been a while since they’ve attended church. If that’s you, start going. This isn’t a debate on religious principles, it’s a principle of morality. That basics of what’s right and wrong seem to be missing in most of the world out there and there are very few who will stand up for what’s right in the face of opposition. Church can give you purpose and inspiration if you are lacking.


This is #11 but needs to be in here. People tend to treat their belongings, businesses, and people around them, the same way they treat their own bodies. The mind and the body are one. If the body is weak, so is the mind. One without the other is a waste, but together, at their peak, they are powerful. Stay fit.


Always be moving forward without fear. You can accomplish more that you think you can and more than you already have. Life IS short. Make the most of it while you have the strength and resources to do so. No regrets!
