It is said, first impressions last. True. Should it? Always?
I think not. Because it is the tendency for people to always put their best foot forward. What we always project is not really who we are. Your initial perception about something or someone may be based on incomplete or false information.
There is always more to the story.
Things are not always what they seem.
Not all that glitters is gold.
I am not saying first perception or impression is not important. If you are considering someone or something don’t let it be the sole basis of your decision. If you are giving an impression, be authentic. Do not project who you are not.
To make the most of everyday, be authentic everyday.

In many ways we put a leash around our necks. We choose the ‘safety’ and certainty of the Harbour over the uncertainty and imagined dangers of the ocean. In the process, we limit ourselves and underestimate our capabilities.
When you choose to remain in the harbour, you only get what comes to you, which is sadly, not always much. However, when you venture out, in spite of your fears, there is no limit to the things you can achieve.
- Read that book.
- Write that book.
- Start/ resume that workout.
- Take that break/ rest/ vacation.
- Work on that idea.
Venture out of the harbour, if you want to make the most everyday.
You are doing something by not doing anything about a thing. I couldn’t agree more with Francine Rivers.
As it is popularly said. you plan to fail when you fail to plan. The common thing between ‘plan to fail’ and ‘fail to plan’ is ‘plan’, as a verb, not a noun.
Whatever you do, or refuse to do, you are taking action. Either progressive or regressive.
What would you rather do?
