At the end of the movie, Gone With the Wind, Scarlet O’Hara says “I’ll think about it tomorrow. Because, after all, tomorrow is another day”. She was putting off solving a problem and getting what she really wanted (in this case Rhett Butler).
Benjamin Franklin famously said, “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.”
Both were notoriously ambitious and determined. But one saw the power in getting what you want RIGHT NOW. Tomorrow turns into another tomorrow and another. Before you know it, a week and then a month has gone by and you still don’t have what you really want- whether it’s clients, cash, a new job, a new relationship or a new you.
Are you a Scarlet or a Benjamin?
