Take a look at yourself in the mirror. Don't just look at what you appear to be, but see deeper into who you are. What things things have you done that led you to this moment?
See anything that you like? What about things you don't? If you could have started that new job a few years ago, if you could have completed that degree, got that designation, learned that skill, wrote that book, built that car, whatever it was, would you go back and do it?
Now flip the angle and look at things from the other perspective. What are the chances that you will be looking in the mirror a year from now thinking that you should have done it (whatever it is) sooner?
The point is this: don't get caught in your daily routine; the future will always be full of regrets if you don't take action today.
