If not now then when?

I was sifting through my race packet from the 5 Mile Columbus Turkey Trot I did on Thanksgiving when this little dandy of a flyer appeared.

150 Miles, 24 Hours, 10 to a Team, and 2 Drivers.

I glanced at it, drew on the vision of how cool it would be to do, and then put into the pile for the recycling bin.

After a few minutes I looked at it again and thought to myself “If not now then when?”

It is a once a year event and I have the dates open on my calendar.  

Maybe there won’t be another one? 
Maybe there could be a million other excuses and reasons for not doing it?
Or maybe I should just do it.

A text of the picture to a good friend ten seconds later came back with a reply of YES we get to do this.

Now we are going to build our team and probably have a terribly painful yet awesome 24 hours.

How many times do we put things off and come up with excuses?  I do every single day and imagine you do as well.  It’s our human nature and we are good at it, don’t be upset about it!

But the question I pose to you and I will continue to pose to myself is “If not now then when?”

It’s so easy to brush incredible experiences off to a later day, month, year, and ultimately to a time when it will never happen.

This can be a personal or professional call to arms. 

If not now then when?

Why not now? 

That’s what I say and will continue to push myself and you to say!

What have you been putting off?  Declare the commitment and a time to deliver on it!

Don’t think you have enough time to make it happen?
