Take Action Now Start Where You Are


take action now to get what you want www.janeanesworld.com


It is magnificent to take action now and do something great – start where you are. There are so many people all around the world with great plans and wonderful ideas of things they would like to do “one day.” You have heard them, they talk about all the things they will do one day when:


  • they lose another 15 pounds
  • they get a college degree
  • the children get out of the house
  • the business is on firmer footing
  • when the world is perfectly aligned with the moon and the stars


There is something funny about “one day,” the funny thing is that it is not on the calendar. Our calendars have Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There is no spot marked “one day.” That means that when you make your plans, the ones you schedule for one day are not going to get the attention they need. They are not going to get done. If you want to get something done, stop waiting for that mysterious one day to arrive. Instead, put your plans on the calendar on a day that actually exists.

Taker Action Now – Start Where You Are to Get What You Want

The church girl in me is reminded of the saying that we can come to Jesus as we are. It means that you don’t have get a certain way or be a certain thing to have a relationship with God. It can start today, just as things are. It is the same way with all of your grand plans and ideas. I taught all my children that they need to take action now. They know they shouldn’t get ready, they should stay ready. They know they should start from where they are and go where they want to go.


Look at your life, think about what you want to do, no matter how big, no matter how important. Start now, where you are with what you have and start making it happen. If you need to write a plan, write a plan. If you have written a plan, take action now and start doing the first thing on that plan. Take action now, move now. The best and most important thing you can do is to take “one day” out of your vocabulary. Start to really understand the fact that “one day” is not a day on your calendar. When you have that understanding, take action now, with what you have now and make your world what you want it to be.


In conclusion, it is magnificent to take action now and do something great – start where you are

. So, the question for you this magnificent day is, what incredible thing are you going to start now?

  1. Very true! Take action right now and make your dream happen 🙂

  2. It’s true, one day never comes. Sometimes it’s good to take action right away.

  3. This post is so spot on. I like to live by the quote “There are seven days in the week and someday isn’t one of them.”

  4. One day may never come so sometimes it’s a god thing to not wait around.

  5. You are right. There is no “one day” on the calendar. It always drives me insane when people say they are going to start after xxx date or when they do xxx. If you want to make a change, why wait?

  6. I’m going to stop putting off that nap! haha No seriously I’m exhausted today!

  7. I do like your point to start where you are and move forward and take action. Sometimes we sit around waiting and miss the boat!

  8. Very true! That first step is always the hardest!

  9. I know from experience as a fence sitter, that one day quickly becomes YEARS later! I agree that if it’s something you truly want to do in your personal or business life, start NOW. Great post!

  10. I’ve heard the first step to success is simply getting started now. I believe there is a huge element of truth in it too.

  11. What a very inspirational post! I agree, sometimes we get caught up in thinking about ‘one day’ with our busy go-go-go lives but the truth of the matter is only we’re the ones who decide when one day is!

  12. Maybe you should create a calendar with one of the days marked off and “oneday” added in place of it. Call it the “Take Action Now” calendar.

  13. LOL One Day! So true! Thanks for reminding me that everyday can be my One Day!

  14. It’s true, we need to live like there’s no tomorrow. I better get started on working out today!

  15. I love the ‘take action now’ mentality. If we wait for ‘one day’, it may never come!

  16. Good point about “one day”. I guess I need to stop with that as I might as well be saying never.

  17. you are totally right. some day isn’t on any calendar. writing things on the calendar makes me way more accountable!

  18. I’m so bad about saying one day. I even put things in my calendar and don’t get to it!

  19. If we wait til we hit a goal until we start something new, we’ll never get started. So much smarter to start now.

  20. I am starting a new journey to eat healthy. I did ok today and I did exercise.

  21. I completely agree. Why put off to tomorrow what you can do today? I am a firm believer in taking action and making changes right away.

  22. It is so true that you have to start where you are and have a goal in mind. If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.

  23. So true, you just have to start and the only place you can start is where you are.

  24. It is so easy to put things off, but it opens up the danger of things never getting done. I am usually the jump in with both legs kinda person

  25. This is so true! You can only change by starting where you are at now. Otherwise you just keep procrastinating…like me!

  26. So true and can apply to so many aspects of life. Especially with kids! I hear my mil tell my kids “some time” or “one of these days” and she never does it. She doesn’t realize the kids don’t forget and she’s losing this time with them while they’re young. relationships with kids start from day one!

  27. Taking action now will certainly ensure that your plans and dreams don’t fall by the wayside – great advice!

  28. Absolutely LOVE that quote with the flower! It is SO true!! Such a great post!

  29. Where were you stationed? My brother is enlisted and has been for over 6 years! 🙂

  30. Good achievable goals… Take action and get it done.

  31. This is so important. Sometimes the day/time gets away from me and my ‘Take Action Now’ moments slip away. I need to remind myself of this more often. I do travel and go places I want to without waiting. I’m a big believer and living life to the fullest!

  32. Yes, setting precise goals with deadlines will really push you. I have a big one on Wednesday!

  33. Clean and organize my house! Sounds silly but I keep putting it off and seeing how my daughter was stung by a scorpion yesterday.. I must do it no matter how crazy it makes me!

  34. I am free spirit type and I take action every day. I also think I may have a few issues with impulse control according to my parents but my son loves his crazy mom. I know that the biggest decision I ever made was on a whim and it made my family furious. I woke up one day and said I am going to join the Coast Guard today and I did it stayed in for 5 years best things ever.

  35. I need to follow this advice. My one day is always Monday and i always has to do with starting a diet.

  36. I’m guilty of “one day when the kids are older.” They are just so hands-on right now! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel though. 😉

  37. It’s so easy to put things off! So I don’t. Right now, we’re trying to plan our summer vacation – we finally just went ahead and set the week. Everything fun will fall into place. I’m sure of it!

  38. It is always easier to put things off. Sometimes it is necessary because you can’t do everything now. It is good to prioritize:)

  39. Great advice. I am “studying” for my real estate license, but I keep putting it off. Thanks for the kick in the pants 🙂

  40. It’s Monday. The perfect day to take action and get motivated. I hope to take your advice.
