Many of us have dreams of what we want to become in life, where we dream of going in life, yet we never carry a step to the journey of our dreams. Some of us wait until things will get right, we wait for what they call the right time. Right time might actually be true, as it has been said that there is time for everything under the sun. So we believe until everything is right with time. Is anything ever being wrong with time?

The belief that there is time for everything under the sun has been a great excuse for most of us why we have never started anything. We keep on waiting till the time is right, and start what we dream to start. I always feel sorry, when i personally realised that most time, time is neutral, how we are using it determines if the time is right or not.

Why not now to work on our dreams, goals, and what we want to become in life. Some of us might want to become a successful politician, yet we never have any time to think of what politics is all about, we never think of holding a post in our schools, communities, and so on. We always think it is not the right time, our academics might be affected, the responsibilities might be too much. If we can't handle the small position while still on campus, how are we going to survive with the bigger ones. So is the same when we dream of becoming leaders, business owners and so on. 

Why not now? Making use of today, and start from small level. Start and fail, learning what we are supposed to learn, and prepare ourself to become great in the future ahead. We should not forget that what we are today is a product of the past, what we shall become tomorow will also be as a product of today. If we are not starting today, how sure are we that we are going to become what we want to be tomorrow. What we become in life, is a matter of choice we made today and not by chance.

Life is like a chemical reaction, without required reactance with right catalyst (and other factors), we should not expect any product. Why not introducing the required reactance, and add up the right catalyst of hard work now in order to get the lovely and great product we want. Life is even like farming, whatever we sow, so  shall we surely reap. Why not planting our seed as early as possible, and start our life farming, getting rid of our dreams weeds, engaging ourself into mulching of our dreams from life over heating, watering it properly, and so on. Why not now, and start living.

Why not stop giving excuse of imperfection and just start now. Many of us carry great business ideas, music, innovations, leadership skills, books, art works, and so on, things that can change generations for better inside us. Many people are still studying works of William Shakespheare who had died long time ago since April 1616, more than 300 years back. Till now his works still have influence on our generation. Why can't we forget perfection for a while and just start, why do we have to fear not being very good at grammar, not being so courageous, losing money into business, critics and so on. It is our life, not others life. We should have great thinking, but never waste time while thinking. We should start, but learn how to become better as we proceed. All professionals were once armateurs that conquered all forms of fear. No matter how good they might also be, they also keep learning and improving everyday.

Why not now, why waiting tilll we have everything we need before we start.  Great companies started with what they have at hand. Remembering the biblical parable of three men which their master gave talents, and went his own way. "He gave talents to them according to their ability" the man with two talents never complained, unlike the foolish man with one talent. He, rather, multiplied what was given unto him. If we refused to use what our master gave to us, I fear if we won't lose them just like that foolish man with a single talent. Why not starting with what we have now. If we make profit, more will surely be added unto us like the wise man having five talents. But which one are we among the three men?

What we should be more concerned most of the time is about our duration here. We neither know  when we will be called upon to give account, nor know when our master will return from his journey. Why not start to invest in our talents now, make our dreams come true, add value to ourself and others. Sun knoweth not what the weather has in plan for it, whether it will rain or not. Also, sun will not shine till the night. Why not make our sun light to shine now before the arrival of night. We should never forget that true living is not just by duration, but by great donation. Why not now and make our own great donation?
