January is an ideal time to adopt an “Everyday is Whensday” philosophy. By now you’ve probably noted the unique spelling (or at the very least realized the date of this blog post is most certainly NOT the weekday that falls between Tuesday and Thursday.)
I first shared this concept last year after I’d spent some time thinking about just how many of my own projects get delayed because of simple procrastination. I scribbled the concept in my journal, bought the domain name, and put it on my “when-I-have-a-chance-to-get-around-to-it-list.”
Whensday is that day you tell yourself (and everyone else) that you’re going do something. It’s the day you’ll accomplish those big dreams; when you’ll write your book, when you’ll take that long-desired vacation to Ireland, or when you’ll start your own business. But Whensday is also the day when you say you’re going to follow-through on those smaller (and very attainable) dreams; when you’ll take a continuing education class, when you’ll sign-up for ballroom dance lessons, when you will clean the garage, when you’ll fix the toilet, when you’ll read more books, when you’ll learn to play the ukulele, etc.

I’ve got news for you, that perfect day when — the stars are in alignment and all your lottery numbers hit, some Hollywood talent scout runs into you at Starbucks and thinks you’d be perfect in the next George Clooney movie, and Steve Jobs calls to ask you to run Apple for him — just ain’t gonna happen.
Well, folks… Today is Whensday!
You just need to decide that today is the day you’re going to start putting your goals into action. Today is when you’re going to write the first chapter of your novel, today is when you’re going to call up that dance studio and sign-up for a class this week, today is when you’re going to go down to the hardware store and by a new floaty-thing for your toilet tank.
TODAY is Whensday.
TOMORROW is Whensday.
EVERYDAY is Whensday.
This year is filled with 365 Whensdays.
Make every single one of them count.
