Just Do It. Now.

Knowing what I know now, I would tell my ten-years-ago self:

Just freaking do it!

You want to change your life? Change it!
You want to say no? Then stand up and say no!
You want to write a book? So write a book!
You really want to make ... your career? Don't worry if it's enough money or not just go for it.

And stop waiting!

Don't wait until you have all the details figured out because you never will
Don't wait until the kids are older because you'll regret the time wasted.
Don't wait until there's enough money because there will never be enough.
Don't wait until the time is right because new issues will come along making it never the perfect time.

Most of all, I would tell my younger self --
You will only be happy,
You will only be successful,
You will only be content,
When you are living your life the way you want to live it.
