“We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, but others judge us by what we have already done.” –Leo Tolstoy
This quote caught my attention because it’s such an interesting reminder not to allow our dreams for ourselves sidetrack us from the actual accomplishing of the dreams. It’s so easy to fritter away our lives with “Someday I’ll write that novel,” and “When I have the time I will…” Thinking about the dream and planning to someday accomplish the dream can be a powerful sedative. These habits in themselves are a form of procrastination.
The only moment we are guaranteed is this one, so what are we waiting for? Get to work!
