Better Late Than Never

I have been faithfully writing this blog every Monday since I started it back in March 2010. Alas, yesterday I failed to post. In my defence, yesterday was a long-weekend Monday, but still, I have never used this excuse before. While travelling back to the city after a weekend in the mountains, I considered not posting at all this week. But then this got me thinking about the idea of “better late than never.” And then I knew I had to write and post this – late. But better than not at all.

It is so easy to fall off the good-habit wagon. Have you ever had the thought, “Well, I missed this one day. I failed. So I might as well miss the next day too. And the next.” And so on. We are our own worst critics and can be very unforgiving. It is so much more difficult to get back on track after breaking a good habit than it is to keep one going.

But we need to realize that sometimes, you just have to let it go. Yesterday, I was not feeling inspired to write my blog. And that’s OK. I’ve written it today. Life went on. Next Monday, I’ll post again. Cut yourself some slack sometimes and then get right back at it. We are not perfect. And you will most certainly run into problems in your business and in life in general if you don’t internalize this idea. Refuse to magnify your failures. Celebrate successes. And then move on. Because time is going to keep on ticking away, whether you move with it or not.

Namaste 🙂
