There are plenty of ways to recognize a foolish individual. They say idiotic things. They generate unforced errors. They arouse the equivalent unforced errors persistently. And you tend to recognize a fool when you see one.
Equitably, everything foolish you hear coming from someone else or out of your own mouth are the words: “Someday, I’ll…” “When I’m older I hope to…” “I’m not ready right now but…” “If I ever finish this, then I’ll…”
What makes you think you have that luxury? What makes you think you’ll have the time?
Forget about issues of self-worth and status and dues-paying for a moment. From a practical perspective, you can’t get ready for something that’s already here. And that’s what life is.
It’s right now.
Right this second!
Don’t be a fool. Live today. Be the best you can be now.
And be unique!
