You know that feeling you get when you haven’t been to the gym in a few days? A bit claustrophobic. Irritable. Uncertain. Some get that same feeling near the end of a vacation. I’ve heard stories from others that say they felt this way when they first retired.

Thankfully, the solution is really simple. Get to work.

“Joy for human beings lies in proper human work.” – Marcus Aurelius

When someone asks you what you did yesterday, do you really want the answer to be “nothing”? If you want to do something you must make a habit of it. “We are what we repeatedly do,” Aristotle said, “therefore, excellence is not an act but a habit.”

Close your eyes and envision the person you want to be. How closely do the actions you have planned for today, tomorrow, and next week correspond with that person? If your current habits don’t align with the person you want to be a year from now, today is the time to change.

Simply knowing isn’t enough. Action must be conditioned into the body and mind. It must become a part of us or we risk losing it the moment we experience stress or difficulty. You only get one shot at today. You only have 24 hours in which to take it. Then, today is gone forever. What will you manage to make of today before it slips away and becomes part of your past?

Today, not tomorrow, is the day we can start the habit. Get out there and get to work.
