We all have them.
“If ____ happens, then I’ll do ____.”
If this emergency passes, then I’ll take a break.
If this customer closes, then I’ll invest in my education.
If we get this finished, then we’ll focus on that.
Too often, the ifthen is nothing but a stall. As a result, we burn trust, and worse, postpone a future we’d like to spend time living in.
Take your ifthen’s seriously. The future always happens sooner than we expect.
reminds me of this quote from Osho: “Tomorrow never comes, it is always today.”
