I’ll Get to It Someday

Someday. That’s pretty open-ended when it comes to getting started on something or setting goals that people claim they want to reach.

Someday, why not now? This is the question I usually ask of clients who have all sorts of explanations and rationalizations for why they can’t act now, but can’t tell me when the time is right.

They can’t confront their relationship issues; can’t begin a health regimen; can’t embark upon taking up that hobby they’ve so often dreamed about.

So I ask how I can help them become less fearful. I ask if they’re interested in exploring why they continue procrastinating.

Someday, why not now? Because otherwise life just fades away a bit at a time replete with unfulfillment.

Someday is not the eighth day of the week.
