The Tomorrow Monster...
There have been 76 tomorrows that have passed since my last post. 76 times I said I would do it on the next day. The first few didn't bother me. Life gets in the way of things we WANT to do sometimes. As each day passed, the weight got a little heavier. My enemies should've, could've, and would've began to find their way into my language. I started to feel that tomorrow would never turn into today, and when it did, it might be too late.
Why couldn't I get it done? It was me getting in the way of me. How could I share positive thoughts, when I couldn't even find the light at the end of this long tunnel I found myself standing in? The tomorrow monster got in the way of engagement. I would just wait for tomorrow, when things were better and life slowed down enough for me to breathe and sit.
Tomorrow isn't coming. Tomorrow is always waiting, but you will never see it. Tomorrow isn't real. What I realized is I need to ensure that tomorrow transforms into today. "I will do it tomorrow" doesn't set us up for success. Tomorrow needs to be what we CAN and WILL accomplish TODAY....if it isn't, we will perpetually wait for something that will never come, and the tomorrow monster will win again.
I look forward to seeing you again soon, on the next TODAY we are together. May you overcome the tomorrow monster and find the TODAY you are looking for in your journey.
Thanks for stopping by. These are musings on how I see leadership in the world and how I continue to try and grow through my lens.
