The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. And the second best time is today!

Mostly used by financial planners, this old Chinese proverb reminds us that it’s never too late to create something new.

I hear all sorts of excuses for why people cannot move ahead on their goals…

  • There isn’t enough time left
  • We missed the opportunity
  • What’s the point
  • Others are way ahead

And so on. Sound familiar?

This is all just noise in your head. Starting today is as valid as 20 years ago. The next 20 years will happen anyway. Are you going to choose to be passive or active?

Action
– What’s one thing you have let pass because of a “too late” excuse? Make plans to move that forward today.

Because it really is never too late to start.
