Mahatma Gandhi said it so well when he said to make a decision, and take action, and “be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
When I was a kid we used to say, “wishes are for fishes.” I’m not clear where that came from, but I think I get the point that being busy isn’t enough of an excuse. The real problem isn’t the doing of the deed, but the desire to do the deed.
When people have a desire to achieve something, they just seem to find a way to make it happen. Everyone else either doesn’t give it any attention, or they make a bunch of excuses that they think will sound good and important to someone else.
There are two decent options left. One is to realize that “it is never too late to be what you might have been,” and get off the excuse-0-round by making a decision and making some moves. And, two, develop the desire to change by creating reasons and benefits that surround the change, helping it to become more of a priority.
Oops. There is one more. Forget all about it, refuse to participate or discuss it any further.
