There are two words that are guaranteed to mess up your life: Someday and but.
- Someday I’ll be a runner.
- Someday I’ll lose weight.
- Someday I’ll start my business.
- Someday I’ll purse my dream career.
- Someday I’ll live my dream.
- But I’m too old.
- But I’m too young.
- But I don’t have any money.
- But I make too much money to risk.
- But I’m not smart enough.
