Regret & procrastination: the result of unutilized time.
Time’s understanding is quite difficult to explain, notwithstanding as humans we have our way of measuring time in either seconds, minutes or hours.
In furtherance to this measurement, the clock as seen is now a standard for the call of time all over the world irrespective of the difference in time zones.
One very salient fact about time is its inevitable progression because time doesn’t stop nor wait for anyone. Instead, time keeps moving and you don’t get younger. Sadly you can only get older.
The passing of time with various events solely begins to form what you call or refer to as your past.
Any day you do not utilize becomes your past. Over time, if you do not pay close attention, you may begin to forget that time cannot be regained.
In other to reiterate that you cannot regain time when most men and women in their 60’s or 70’s are asked if they have done all they think they should have done in their prime?
The more popular response is usually filled with regret of which it ends in “I wish I had more time and did more in my prime”.
This response brings up many questions like: What is the notion of time? Can we really have enough time to do all we need to do? Considering the inevitability of death.
If you have pondered on these questions; it is therefore not far-fetched that “you need to do what you can, when you can, while you can”
The feeling of regret is painful and hard to let go of especially if you had time but failed to utilize it.
Trust me you don’t ever want to feel regret in life. Often times, later in life if you haven’t achieved at least 70% of the plans or goals you set to achieve, you are likely going to end up in regret.
Age is no barrier, time is no barrier and circumstance is no limit.
Rather than live in regret or wish you had done it; why not start today.
If you take a bold step in starting today, you will discover an intense feeling of joy, a reawakening and a sense of purpose that you will have different from what you once had.

A surprise you had in mind for your spouse or family? A certification you planned starting? A skill you planned to learn or an extra income plan you have decided to start?
If you have a goal, plan or something you planned doing and haven’t done, then make up your mind to start because there would never be enough time or perfect timing to start. So just start!
There is no time to delay this goal because you are not in charge of time. Let me ask you, what if you planned to surprise your spouse tomorrow and you lost him or her today?
It’s not a cruel question, but its the reality of what happiness in our world today. So just start whatever it is you have in your to-do list, that you haven’t yet done.
NEVER ENDING RESPONSIBILITY I hear parents say I would begin a course in baking when my daughter is five years old, that way I would have more time and less responsibility.
Such a plan is good however such prediction most times do not usually end that way.
For instance, what if in the five years of waiting, the parent in question starts taking a baking class for three hours daily, I am certain that by now such parent would have been a pro baker at the end of five years.
The point being made is that responsibilities are never-ending. Unplanned things can come up in the future so just start even if you have just an hour dedicated to a course-just do it.
The abundance of time is a myth. The belief that there would always be time is a lazy man’s currency which can place you in a constant state of unproductiveness.
There would never and can never be enough time, so say no to regret and procrastination. So just start, start today- just do it!
