Kids dream. Adults get things done.
That’s not the only difference between them, but it’s one of them, and it’s an important one.
Are you getting things done? Or are you still like a kid, just waiting for the day when you’re old enough or rich enough or have enough time to do the things you’ve always dreamed of?
I know, I know. It sounds corny. So I’ll make it less so:
Be an adult.
Figure it out.
You don’t have to fly to the moon.
But do something.
Make your life better.
Make yourself happy.
From something I’m writing right now:
“The thing about the way I am now and the way I used to be when I was younger is that even though my goals aren’t as high, I feel more able to make them happen. They aren’t just things I hope to do someday; they’re things I actually will do someday.
I’m a real adult now, after all. Not just a person in college.
I have power.
They may not be as important as the things I used to dream of doing, but they are important to me.”
