Rohn: Don't wait until tomorrow

The problem with waiting until tomorrow – to do anything – is that when it finally happens, it's called today. Today is tomorrow is yesterday, so the question is: what did we do with this opportunity? Too often, we will waste tomorrow as we wasted yesterday…and as we waste today. All that could have been accomplished can easily slip away from us, despite our intentions, until we inevitably discover that the things that could have been slipped from our embraces just one unused day at a time.

No matter how old someone is, there is a sense of urgency that should compel them to act now – right now. We need to be constantly aware of the value of every moment of our lives – moments that seem so insignificant that their loss often goes unnoticed. We still have all the time we need. We still have many opportunities, many opportunities, many years to show what we can do. There will be a tomorrow, a next week, a next month and a next year. But unless we develop a sense of urgency, these brief windows of time will sadly be wasted, along with the weeks, months, and years that preceded them. There is not an infinite supply.
