When I was ten years (1973) old I got a set of stickers that were over the top cool. They were customized.
Yep. Each sticker said things like, ―Far out, Jim!‖ ―LOVE Jim!‖ ―Genius Jim Award!
Now you understand my post headline, don’t you? I couldn’t use stickers like these just anywhere. No way. I had to find the perfect place. So I held onto them.
Weeks. Months. Years. Uh, yes, decades.
I found them recently, thirty years later, in a shoe box stuffed with hot wheels and other childhood memories. And I had a light bulb moment.
I have a friend that says anything worth doing, is worth doing badly. In other words, the perfectt moment to attempt something, the perfect circumstances to use your gifts almost never happens. The planets rarely align while birds outside your window sing Handel’s Messiah, signaling you to take action.
You’re probably never going to get it exactly right. But if you take action, even the tiniest action, at least you’ve done something.
So peel off your favorite sticker and use it. Today. God says walk as wise men and make the most of your time (stickers) because the days are evil.
My stickers? I was in the garage when I found them, so now they’re on the sides of my table saw.
Pretty groovy huh?
