In 2017 one of my good friends decided to open a shop and he asked me for some advice.
After clearing all his ideas I said him that it could work and so he went ahead.
Now here I had specifically told him to get a certain license for the kind of goods he was going too sell.
An easy process but it takes visiting to the govt office a few times and he was one lazy bastard
He opened his shop without it and started.
It wa good setup and he soon made money.
I visited him once around and month later and while talking asked him if he has applied/got the license.
He sheepishly said to me that he will get it done Tomorrow at the earliest
I told him to hurry up and get that shit done and he promised me tomorrow he would do it.
I saw him after 2 months and seems like his “Tomorrow” had not come yet.
He had not applied/got the license needed and again when I asked gave me the same stupid answer that he will get it done “later” “ASAP”
My next visit was then after exactly 35 days and when I visited him he was sitting in a pretty bad phase of mind
Seeing me however he welcomed me and we went to the nearby restaurant for a quick meal.
A little later he burst out to me how his shop had been visited by a food officer and he had to pay a large amount of money as bribe to get off as he had not gotten the license.
Fuming he cursed the officer and his forefathers.
I just nodded my head and continued to eat.
Later that day when I left his office he told me he had applied for the license and will get it in 2_3 days.
This got me thinking.
I see many times people put off work for “later”/”tomorrow” .
Some even important work which can’t be delayed is also extended by some.
THIS IS CALLED AS TOMORROW FUCKERY
People forget that there is no “tomorrow” nor “yesterday”.
There is only today / the present.
Getting shit done today will save you a lot of headache as the above story proves.
The most successful people apply the “do it right now” principle to life.
There is a reason why putting work until “tomorrow” doesn’t work. Simply because “tomorrow” never arrives for almost 90% of the population.
You want to start your venture but are putting it off for later well fuck that and start it.
THERE IS NO TOMORROW. ONLY TODAY – THE PRESENT.
You want to call that cute chick but will do it tomorrow? Pick up the phone and call her this instant.
As humans we are the procrastinating type.
Many of us would rather watch the web series on TV instead of repairing that car fuel pipe. Oh I will do it later is what your brain says to you. Fuck that
You see when you stop pushing getting shit done to ‘later’ will you truly be achieving results.
So stop your “tomorrow” fuckery and get that shit done.
Remember the saying
A stitch in time saves nine
