The Great Fundraisers Don’t Put Things Off
Carpe Diem is an ancient Latin phrase which means, “Seize the Day.” That’s their credo— Seize the Day.
The great ones don’t put things off. They believe in the dictum of TNT— Today, Not Tomorrow.
That says it all. You don’t put it off. Let procrastination be considered your personal treason and treachery. Delay, dawdling, and dalliance are repugnant to soul and spirit.
Do it now. Wavering and vacillation lead to the street of by-and-by that reaches the house of never.
A Saint once wrote that the present moment is eternity. Aah! He understands life. And Seneca, who desired above all to live life to the brim, admonished us to dispose of each day in such a way that it consumes our life.
The avenue of despair and disappointment is paved with the timid and tired who don’t get things done, who won’t act. These men and women conspire with the devil of failure.
This is the time to act. It is your priceless and irreplaceable moment. The opportunity may not come again.
You must engage the day, ravage the moment. Wring and wrest from it all that is good and all it will yield.
