Today’s thoughtful Thursday post is courtesy of Mark Cuban, a successful entrepreneur & investor and the owner of the Dallas Mavericks (a US basketball team). He’s estimated to be worth more than $4bn and he claims the best advice he ever received is…
“Today is the youngest you will ever be. Live like it.” – which came from his dad.
He expands on this further saying “live like today is the youngest you’ll ever be by setting a goal, creating a process that supports it, tracking your progress, fixing what doesn’t work, and repeating what does.”
Whilst obvious on the face of it, there really is something in acknowledging the pace that life seems to whizz by at.
Putting off things that we really want to achieve (including your workout) until later / Monday / the New Year / some other specified point is entirely counterproductive at best and sabotage at worst.
So take a few mins today to do something that takes you in the direction of your goal. And share those steps if you want to…we all know how much accountability helps!
