I put my two little daughters to bed every night. It has been an extremely fun thing to do for us. I have to make stories for them on the spot based on their chosen words and I am happy to create such memorable moments with my children on a daily basis.
Then, one day I was looking at the photo of my elder daughter at my office desk and suddenly noticed that she had become much bigger than a year ago when the photo was taken. That was the moment I realized that steady movement, even if little, towards any target eventually results in significant development. I broke it down further and discovered that my children today are not the same I met yesterday. I thought about my own self. What if I had slowly and continuously worked towards my goals?
Nothing significant would have changed for a few days or weeks, but looking back a year or two, I could have advanced significantly towards my dreams. Since that day, I have been almost consistently waking up at 4:30 in the morning and working for three hours before the morning routine starts. When my inner procrastinator pulls me towards the bed, I visualize my daughters sleeping in the next room growing slowly.
Now, we all are growing together.
If you don’t have children, take a look at your surroundings. This day – which has dawned upon us today – will never come again in our life. This day, when I am writing this post, has come just once in the history of the universe. Don’t let the sun go down today before you have accomplished something meaningful towards your set goals. Before it’s too late.
