My parents live in a rural area. Cell reception at their house is limited to one particular spot in the kitchen and generally requires that you lift your phone above your head and tip it toward the centre window behind the table while standing on your left foot and reciting the alphabet backwards. (Okay, so the left-foot-alphabet part is a lie, but you get the idea.) So naturally, during my recent visit, I mostly left my phone off. When I turned it on one evening and searched for the sweet spot so I could check my messages, the screen looked like this:
Check out the date! My phone thought it was January 4, 1981. For a moment, I felt like Marty McFly. (Who knew the Model A in my dad’s garage was actually a DeLorean in disguise?)
After letting my mind wander back to reality (it doesn’t especially like reality, but it’s willing to check in now and then), I got thinking about 1981. Do you remember 1981? Some of you probably weren’t even born yet, lol. But me? yeah, I remember it. And guess what I realized as I thought back over the years? Time passes. I know–crazy, right? But here’s the thing: it passes whether we’re moving toward our goals or not. And March 2013 isn’t going to be any different. March will pass, and we can be right where we are now in terms of our goals. Or, March will pass, and we’ll have achieved amazing things!
Where do you want to be on March 31?
Think about the goals you set. Now
hop in your DeLorean take a step toward your goals. Put in the time, do the work. Then tomorrow, take another step. And another the day after that. Keep at it (even when it feels like madness), and I guarantee when you finally get to the future, you’ll be thrilled to see what you’ve accomplished.
How’s March Madness going for you so far? Are you moving forward?
