Avoiding the “Someday” Trap

Procrastination leading to regret

Facing a new year reminds me of all the things I want to do someday and all the things I wanted to do but haven’t done. The procrastination sets in; someday never seems to be today.

Someday may never come

For me, the concept of someday becoming a daydreaming and dangerous word.  We live our lives thinking there’s always more time.

Someday assumes a distant future with possibilities, this can be a distraction from what’s happening here and now.  Someday makes me lose focus on my goals as I work towards my personal vision.

The perils of overthinking

So in this new year, I want to upgrade the word someday from a dream to a possibility. To incorporate it into my personal vision. To make measurable goals out of them and make them happen.

Final thoughts

Why wait for a future that is not guaranteed?  I don’t want to have a collection of somedays laying around as a form of regret.
