The term ‘one day’ is a free pass to procrastination. Everytime we declare that we will achieve something one day, or one day visit that certain place we have always wanted to visit, it sounds very much like we are wanting to put the effort in, but not today. ‘One day’ cannot be marked on a calendar. It isn’t a day of the week or a month in the year. It could be anything between tomorrow and the year 2059. When we don’t set a deadline, we cannot fail in our aims. The problem with this is, not failing is different to achieving. It is entirely possible to not fail and not achieve, in fact it is incredibly easy. What takes effort is to not fail and achieve in the process. Effort of course, is not for everyone.
I took a shot of this sunset whilst on a train. I didn’t get it first time, it took a while to get through the metal girders. But thinking of this in reverse, sometimes we get the view everyday and forget that it won’t always be there or that it will be harder to obtain in future. Like everything there is an expiration, and it is easy to take things for granted.
Make choices that will be sooner than ‘one day’ before that big metal girder gets in the way and it isn’t possible!
That ‘big metal girder’ could be a million things.
I must admit however, it makes the clouds around the sun look great here.
