Someone should do something about this.
Absolutely! We’ve already discussed who should do something– it’s you, remember! But when should you do it?
Between taking care of yourself, your family, and your work, you’ve got a lot going on in your life. Will you forget? When you remember that there was this thing someone should do something about, will you regret all time that passed? How often will it nag at the back of your brain that nothing is being done? How long will you feel guilty for not doing something about something you know is important? Will you miss an opportunity to make a difference?
Now is the only time
Tomorrow may never come, but you have today. Today, you can give your voice, your money, your time to what you believe is important. Today, you can line up the tongue in your mouth with the tongue in your shoe.
There is no ideal future where you have all the time and money you need, because there is never enough time and money– for anyone. Even the rich and retired wish they had more time and money. The challenge is to do today what you know someone should be doing something about, because if not you, who? if not now, when?
Don’t let time and opportunity pass you by.
