You guys…this is it.
This is the moment. The moment where I realized that I have no excuses left. For anything.
Let me explain.
This morning, as I was opening the office with my co-worker, we starting chatting about our goals. And if you’ve read this blog with any sort of regularity, you’d know I’m a huge sucker for goals and anything goal-related.
My co-worker is a fresh faced lad who graduated college only last summer. He told me he was anxious to get going on his goals, which mainly revolved around getting back into doing standup comedy, practicing his swing dancing (he’s a classy guy), and figuring out where he wants to take his career.
I applauded his effort, but reminded him not to be too hard on himself. He did, after all, just graduate college.
And suddenly, I realized that I did not just graduate college. I graduated
college going on two years ago. Until this point, I had always let that be just one of my reasons to let my own goals slide.
I just graduated college, I have plennnnnnty of time to do [insert task].
I’m new to Los Angeles! I just need to get familiar with the city, that’s all.
Nobody ever gains success until they’re at least 25 anyways….
I’ll start [insert creative project] as soon as I’m settled into adulthood.
The list goes on.
I have been my own worst enemy from day one by not holding myself accountable. I based this on the reasoning that as a new grad, I needed to get some sort of “footing”, both mentally and physically in the city.
The truth is, time is ticking, and I have too much to do to let it slide by. If I want to turn my dreams into plans, I need to use every day to its fullest. No excuses.
Happy goal planning!
