If Not Now – When? People Skills

The question for this morning is this: If not now – when?

How many times do you (I know I do) say, “In a minute – I’ll do that later – Let me think about it…” and on it goes – and it may be as simple as being focused on something else – or it could be that we don’t want to risk it.

There are many things in our lives – both big and small things we aren’t doing that we want to do, need to do, intend to do – and we’re not.

A good place to start this new day of a new week is by asking ourselves – what are we putting off?

When we have that determined we can:

  1. Do it now
  2. Schedule it now
  3. Let go of it now

Or ask:

  1. Is this a priority now?

The operative word is – now

If not now – when?

Ask yourself this simple question all day today: If not now – when? And see how it shifts your energy and your day. Let me know your results!

“Every successful person I have ever known has had it – that instinct to sense and seize the right moment without wavering or playing it safe.”  Moss Hart, playwright

Remember you create your day by the way you think! Make it magnificent!

Blessings, Shawna
