When will you pull the trigger on change?

There are great mental gymnastics that go on for many who consider change.  When should I quit smoking?  When should I start doing my push ups?  When should I commit to spending more time to my children?  When should I take charge of my career and do what I know must be done daily to take me to where I want to go?  We get misled into believing that "soon" is a remedy to the challenge.

A phrase was resurrected by Barak Obama in the U.S. during his first run at the presidency. Quoting words from the late Martin Luther King he spoke of  "the fierce urgency of now".  In addition to this timeless phrase Dr. King went on to say;

"In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late. Procrastination is still the thief of time.  Life often leaves us standing bare, naked, and dejected with a lost opportunity.  The tide in the affairs of men does not remain at flood-it ebbs.  Over the bleached bones and jumbled residues of numerous civilizations are written the pathetic words, 'Too late.'" Perspectives - The Power to Change from Within by Randy Taylor of Taylormade Leadership @TheWinnerWithin (Social)Change is as simple and as complex as we choose to make it.  Change will only come about when we pull the trigger and begin the journey forward.  If we start walking today, by tomorrow we will be one day closer to our destination.  If we put it off for another day, the destination will not only remain just a destination, but will ever so slightly begin to dim on the horizon.  Here's what this all means I guess.  Take a moment to consider your goals with "The fierce urgency of now".  Have an excellent day.
