Inspiration has an expiration date

Ok, so it’s been a looooong time since I’ve made a post on here. Life happens, as they say, and you prioritize things accordingly.

My life has gotten crazier and more fun at the same time. Two young kids and a third on the way makes seemingly normal tasks seem borderline unattainable, but yet somehow each day comes to an end and everything is ok.

I’ve been reading a book called “Rework” by the founders of 37signals (37signals.com) The entire book has been profoundly enlightening and an excellent investment of time. The very last page/chapter talks about how “Inspiration has an expiration date”. It’s like this; if you have an idea, vision, dream etc, you need to act on it NOW. Waiting around or saying you’ll “get to it soon” or “when everything is perfectly in place and the stars are perfectly aligned” almost never works.

I’m entering a new phase in my life having just turned 31 As a good friend phrased it, “your 20’s are all about surviving; figuring out who/what you are.” Your 30’s should be about building something great, and leaving a legacy of inspiration, creativity and innovation.

I’m looking forward to the next decade.
