Once you add water to Portland cement powder, you’ve got to move. You have to mix. You have to be ready to pour and apply. There’s limited time before the cement hardens. The clock is ticking.
And so you focus, and you get the job done. You can’t delay. You have to focus.

Are there things that you’ve been putting off, that just need a little push? They just need that first step that forces you to carry out the rest of the task? Like water poured into the cement mix?
Maybe it’s picking up the phone and dialing. Maybe it’s driving to the gym. Maybe it’s asking for professional help.
Whatever it is — that tipping point that will put important things into motion — figure it out, and take that first step. Push yourself into action. You can do it.
