I’ve been on and off diets for longer than I can remember. I can still recall, as a chubby child, being exploited by my siblings to get them what they wanted around the house: “Don’t you want to lose weight? Then bring me Orangina from the kitchen.”

Unhealthy habits are the result of 2 key ingredients:

  • Putting off a decision for “later” (e.g. the “I’ll start tomorrow” diet)
  • Focusing on a temporary change (e.g. diet) rather than a permanent one (e.g. lifestyle)

I’ve now been on a Paleo lifestyle for almost a month and started doing Tabata (4-minute, high intensity interval training) exercises. I’m ecstatic about the results, but there’s a thought that often pops up in my head: Had you started a year earlier, you would be a year ahead by now.

There’s no use regretting the choices I’ve made in the past, but it does serve an important lesson for life and work: There’s no better time to start than now.

Whenever I tell people that I’m the co-founder of Sirdab Lab, they tell me: “You guys are doing an awesome job. I’ve been meaning to visit Sirdab for a long time, but I haven’t yet.”

Does that sound like you? 😛

Just remember: If you start working on your startup and take concrete steps now (instead of a year from now), then you’ll be one year ahead.

Don’t put off your decision for “later”, because the delays will accumulate and regret can creep in.

So, when will you be visiting Sirdab? 🙂
