“One Day…”

is a popular saying typically used for future desires but not necessarily things truly wanted. Life evolves and so do wants and realities.

However, “One Day” is comforting because it creates a feeling of vicarious ownership. “One day I’ll get that job; One day I’ll own that house; One day I’ll write that book; One day I’ll get married.” For a few seconds, you really feel it.

Establishing an expectation builds confidence and is always the first rule to action.

You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them. – Michael Jordan

Still, “One day” falls short of producing short-term action. Envisioning the long-term goal hinders the steps required to achieve it.

What is the “One Thing” you can do today to get you closer to your goal? If you really want it, then you’ll go do it.
