Yesterday you said tomorrow!

Today on Sunday I met one of our former students at Costco. We were briefly talking about how he misses his training. He misses the training partners, the ones who helped him many times to achieve the ‘high’ you get after a workout that you thought you can’t get through.
He keeps dreaming about mastering Kung Fu one day. The Yip Man movies got to him, reminded him of the opportunities he keeps missing year after year.
He misses the comradery, the open-air classes, the seminars, the beach classes.

I meet him about three times a year.

Read above again. It is every time the same talk.

I told him to come to class tomorrow. But he is busy.

“Yesterday you said tomorrow!”

Priorities.

It reminds me of the ‘Songify this’ version of a motivational speech, my daughter showed me. By Shia LaBeouf. Nothing I could add.

Your life is your life
The forms, the repetitions
You should get to the point
Where anyone else would quit
You’re gonna wake up
And work hard at it
Just do it
Nothing is impossible
Just Do It
Yesterday you said tomorrow
Just Do It
Don’t let your dreams be dreams!
The more often you do it
The more light there will be!


P.S.: Once you listened to the song, you won’t be able to read the text lines anymore. You will sing, or at least hum them.
