As Mark Twain once said, 'Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.”
Nope, that isn’t what I was looking for. Let’s try Pablo Picasso’s version, “Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”
If your dream is big, then teachers, career advisers and assorted know-it-alls will try to put you off. Do not to listen to them. Follow it. Be ready for the many setbacks and keep the faith.
I dream of being a writer. So I’m writing. I don’t know where this path will lead, but I have started.
I’m pretty confident that it’s impossible to overstate the importance of starting.
You should start too. Whatever it is you want to do, start it. Stop putting it off, and start in some small way.
And leave the ironing. I’m sure Picasso would agree that you can die with that left undone.
