The Second-Best Time

One of my favorite pieces of wisdom comes from an unlikely place – the garden center at The Home Depot. Specifically, a sign above the shade trees:

“The best time to plant a shade tree was ten years ago. The second-best time is now.”

I absolutely love that. It’s a good reminder that even if you wish you’d done things differently or started something sooner, there’s no time like the present. Maybe you’d be farther along if you’d chosen to start learning some skill or another when you were younger – but you didn’t know then, and you know now. Get started.
