“I’ll do it later”





“I’ll do it later”

I know exactly what I mean when I say ‘I’ll do it later’. It usually means ‘I have no interest in doing that so I’ll put it off until it goes away’ (which it doesn’t). Those things are usually along the lines of washing up, laundry, drying my hair.

The mundane every day crap.

What then are my reasons for putting off the fun stuff? The exciting things that fill me with energy and zest for life?

It’s fear.

The fear tells you that you’re not ready yet, you’ve missed your chance, you’re too old, too skint, too young

You need to use that fear as fuel because you can do that thing, make that change, make a difference, climb that mountain, write that book, apply for that job.

Ask yourself what it is that you’re actually afraid of. Yes it will be hard work to get to wherever it is you want to be, if it were easy you wouldn’t be afraid of it in the first place and it wouldn’t be worth it anyway.

There’s no such thing as a failure if you’ve given it a go.

Do you really want to get to your final days on earth and think ‘I really wish I had started that catering business’ or ‘I wish I hadn’t wasted so many years in a job I hated’.

I’m not saying you should quit your job right now and start selling ice to Eskimos but at least get the feelers out there.

Start slowly at first, we don’t all have the luxury of putting the brakes on real life to pursue our dreams. If it’s going to take time then so be it.

 ‘Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.‘ -Earl Nightingale

Make those plans and stick to them. Set goals, reach them, tick them off your list. Just take that first step.


Don’t let your later become never – Kate Hames





Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough. 

Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow, 

next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂

Be happy and keep smiling 😀

I write, therefore I am. I spend my days writing, wondering what to write, being creative and generally being awesome 😊 Welcome to my world, won't you come on in? xx

  1. Sometimes when I have an idea of something I want to pursue or if I get thrown in the deep end with something I have to ask “what is the worst that can happen if I go ahead with this?”. That seems to put things in perspective for me.
