Just Do It

It's a lazy afternoon.

You've found a comfy spot: a hammock under the trees, some pillows in front of the fireplace, an old chair on the roof.

You've just settled in, ready for that book, or that nap, or that daydream.

And you realize you're thirsty.

What do you do?

If you're like me, you try to quell the desire. "I'll get it later," you say.

But it nags, like an itch or a mosquito.

And you finally realize: You won't be happy until you get up and get that drink.

Learn from this. What's bugging you? Is your hair shaggy? Do you need to lose a few pounds? Do you need a different job?

As somebody said, when we're near the end, we won't so much regret the things we did, as the things we didn't do.

Whatever it is, from the small nag of a glass of water to the two-ton-elephant of a new job, just do it.

You'll be happier.
