One day, it will be 2024. You will still be you, except you won’t be. Think back to the 2014 version of you. I bet you can barely recognize that person. Whether you’re doing it intentionally or not, people change. You changed, and you will continue to change.

We overestimate what we can do in one year and underestimate what we can do in five. It’s so easy to think “This is my year!” or “In 2019, I’m going to do X”, but a year really isn’t all that much time. It’s already April. Time flies. But you probably realized from thinking about your 2014 self that a lot changes in five years.

In five years, you can be living a whole new life. You could have a family, a new career, live in a new country, or be that person you’ve always wanted to be who works out all the time and actually likes eating vegetables. All you need to do to get there is start working now. Start small, but start now.

Don’t get stuck thinking that you have tons of time. Remember how we’re already into the fourth month of 2019? This year will be over before you know it. Get started. Small changes made every day for five years will amount to big things, and that time will pass whether you’re using it or not.
