Thanks for all who responded favorably about the PLANNING article last week. I sure hope you started the planning. Actually, you can finish it in a short period of time and then modify it as needed as time goes on.

A salesman was telling me how tough it was selling his products, then told me he was holding his own. Remember, if it were easy anyone could do it. If you are doing it, it isn't that tough. Right?

Do you have any holiday shopping to do? Well, the sooner, the less stress. I like giving the gift of learning as it lasts a lifetime and pays huge dividends. Go to the SHIPP'S LOCKER and buy books that will be of interest.

HURRY is the article this week. That does not mean to rush in blindly, but HURRY to start it, to get involved. You'll be surprised at how fast it goes. That goes for PLANNING your 2011 goals. Do it NOW, today, this week, soon, very soon.

Hurry up, it’s later than you think.

It’s time to hurry, life is short, and time lost can never be reclaimed.

Are you like many other people? Do you think about something for hours, days, weeks, or even years, never getting around to it? Does the thought become so big you can’t start? It’s too big, too long, or too complicated to start?

Welcome to life itself. You are not unusual, but you are special. We all, to some extent, spend too much time considering and too little time doing.

Watch a kid. Kids just do it, they jump right in, they start, and they do it. If they don’t finish, they usually go back and work at it till they get it. They don’t put it on a to do list, they don’t spend forever considering it, they just do it. Kids see people walk, and they walk. Kids copy others. Kids don’t know how long or difficult something is. They don’t even know that some say it can’t be done. They just know they want to do it, so they do it.

The most difficult part of any project is starting it. Once started, it takes on a life and direction of its own. Somehow, someway, with focus, it gets done. When finished, we always realize it was faster and easier than we made it out to be in our minds.

Often, we realize we spent more time in concern about it than the time it took to do it. Yes, our mental concern and worry took more time and effort than the actual event itself.

So, what’s the solution? Hurry, start it. When you are taking a trip across country, you don’t wait for all green lights before you start. You start, and you adjust as needed while going across the country. The key is to start, to head in the right direction, and to focus on the desired end results. The rest takes care of itself and gets done.

Hurry into action. Hurry to start and don’t delay with too much thought, too much concern, and too much delay.

How many times can you remember doing something and realizing it took less time than you spent being concerned about it before you did it? Do you remember the relief you felt when it was done? Do you remember thinking there was no reason to have wasted so much time being concerned and putting it off? Yes, it feels good. It’s inspirational and freeing.

Well, want to feel good again? Hurry. Do it now.

The year is almost over. We can say we have no time. We can say we are too busy. But, we still have enough time, if we hurry, to just do it. Just do it now, and feel the satisfaction from the accomplishment.
