The favorite word of a true procrastinator. Eventually means at some point.
And ya know what? That's better than never.
It's better to say "I made progress" than "I never even moved at all."
Whether you're trying to earn more money, lose a certain amount of weight, or even build a bigger social circle....
You can give up. You can not even start.
....Or you can tell yourself "eventually".
Take things slow. One. Step. At. A. Time.
There's no need to rush. Besides, those that rush towards their goals, rarely manage to maintain the status they sought to attain.
Lottery winners are the perfect example.
Did you know most lottery winners end up broke shortly after winning? It's true!
They're statistically likely to wind up bankrupt.
How is that? How the fuck does that happen? I mean, heck, they got INSTANT GOAL of getting rich. Certainly, you think they'd stay rich. But that's not the case. You have to wonder why.
You see, it's not about the goal. It's not about the finish line. It's about the journey.
It's about each individual slow n' steady step you take.
It's about the PROGRESS.
Progress is more important than anything. Progress is the heart of "eventually".
You'll stay rich if you earn every cent on your own and aren't just handed a huge sum of wealth. You'll stay fit if you take it one step at a time (physically, literally) and don't just wake up skinny one day.
Progress makes you not only prepared to attain your goal, but also, to keep it.
Take your time to make progress. Don't aim to be a success. Aim to be a "work in progress".
After all, those who get success over night, rarely, if ever, maintain that same success.
Eventually you'll get there. Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow.
But some day...in the future.
Believe that and there never will be a reason to give up.
Even if you don't exactly "make it" to your "final destination", you still get to see all the cool sights along the road of your slow ass journey.
You'll have a better story to tell, a better life lived, if you can say "I didn't make it all the way, but I made it pretty far." than "I didn't go anywhere"
Somewhere is better than no where, just like eventually is better than never.
Who knows? Maybe some day you'll get there. Maybe you won't.
But you know sure as hell you'll regret it if you don't even go for it.
Regret is a lot harder to deal with than responsibility. Remember that.
And laziness is all about avoiding as much hard work as possible. Don't set yourself up to work your ass off fighting regret.
Take the easy way out and take responsibility. Take charge of your goals. Move forward slow n' steady.
Keep in mind that your "eventually" can happen. And even if it doesn't, you'll die satisfied in knowing that you made it far "enough".
