Progress is not made thinking about IT, preparing for IT, planning for IT, talking about IT, learning about IT, questioning IT, or worrying about IT. Progress is made doing IT. Everyday we wake up to the same battle, the battle to roll up our sleeves and do IT.
DO what you ask?
Most of us know. Your thoughts, energy and mind can be consumed by IT. Each day serves up mighty portions of distraction to keep us from doing IT.
IT is a stretch, IT is not easy, IT is not obtained by settling, IT can be found at POINT B when you are living comfortably in POINT A. IT is scary.
But your heart desires IT.
A lot of what we are looking for can be found in IT
IT, that seed, that prompting God plants in each of us.
We can choose to ignore or distract ourselves from IT but the consequences are steep whether we acknowledge it or not.
Want to get healthier? Want to live a fuller life? Want to learn? Want to grow? Want more of what matters? Want more clarity on what your IT is? Stop focusing on the destination; There is no magical place of arrival. Your victory is waiting for you today, it is in the action orient pursuit of IT. In the avoidance of the distracting, shinier, dreamier, complacency of putting it off until tomorrow. Start believing ALL you have today is ALL you need. With gratitude and purpose take what you have and work towards IT, today.
Your confidence, your clarity, your health, your sense of efficiency, your joy, so many things you are longing for are waiting at the intersection of where IT meets today. Victory is not a destination you will one day stand on. VICTORY is standing knee deep in the work of your IT day by day.
Do not ignore your IT today.
Refuse to longly stare down a distant destination. Working on your IT today means you have arrived. You get to stand in VICTORY today.
