When I was 21, my parents separated and I moved in with my mom to contribute financially while she figured out what the next step was and help her with 4 of my siblings that were still at home. She had gotten married at 17 and hadn't had a job outside the home in over 20 years. We were having a family meeting at the dining room table in our new home and we were discussing all the details of both of us working, both of us going to school, looking at buying a house, where the kids were going to go to school, budgets, and more. My mom, emotionally and physically exhausted said, " Maybe I need to quit school until I get my ducks in a row." In a moment of divine clarity, I literally yelled, " No! Forget the ducks! There are no ducks!" And it immediately became a family quote!
My mom stayed in school and went on to become an RN and was able to buy a house and be self sufficient. Too often we are waiting on the right timing circumstances or provision to take action, but those things don't exist. If you want to change your life, you have to make a plan and make it happen! The time is going to pass whether you take action or not. Where do you want to be in a year, 5 years, 10 years? Write it out! Make steps. Start today! And most importantly, Forget the ducks!
