Just Do It

For most of us, we hear or see the phrase “Just Do It” and we think of the Nike logo with the Swoosh. Some of us might think of Shia LaBeouf’s extremely loud motivational speech from June 2015. If you haven’t seen the video, watch it here:

Barack Obama, the 44th president of the United States, said it this way, “The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.

Clearly the world needs hope and purpose as do many of us, so now is the time to “Just Do It”. What’s your “it”? What are you putting off that you “might” regret later? Here are 50 considerations from an article by the author of Time Management Ninja.
