The best time to start something is to start now.
Honestly, I have trouble having any passion over this issue because simply do not struggle with it.
In my mind:
- If something is important to you – you will go do it.
- If something is not important to you – you won’t.
This is also why I have never understood New Year’s resolutions. I mean, if you want to join a gym, eat better, and lose weight, there is nothing special about January.
Still, explain this point to your children.
See, by action, you get to decide who you will become.
“Wrong answer. There is only one time to start making yourself better: NOW. You need to start now, not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, not next year. NOW. Go throw that food in the garbage and pour that soda down the drain. You need to put the right fuel in the machine.”
