As we get older, we spend more and more time doing what we need to do instead of what we want to do. Over the course of a week, I exhaust myself sitting eight and nine hours at a desk, helping friends with their tech problems, absorbing my mother's 80-year-old angst and poring over her paperwork every Saturday, babysitting my second (freelance) job every evening, trying to spend at least a couple of hours with my partner each evening, worrying about the fact that the house is slowly being buried under a layer of dust, dirt, and detritis...and convinced that I will, finally, find that my entire life has been wasted in an avalanche of trivialities.

I am no longer young enough to be able to console myself with the reassurance that things will get better a year, two years, ten years from now, because then I will be old, and it will truly be too late. It's too late for many things right now; I'm not sure but that it's too late for everything.

My advice? Do it now. Today. "I'll do it tomorrow" came sometimes lead to it never happening.
