My Story about Someday

We took a family vacation to Harper’s Ferry West Virginia, a strategic ammunition site in the civil war. The Appalachian Trail passes through Harper’s Ferry as well.  I made the brash statement to my children “Someday, I’d like to hike the Trail from Maine to Georgia”.  So we stopped in the trail conservancy shop and prominently displayed in their lobby is a T shirt that reads “S M T W T F S: You see, there is no someday.”

Ouch!  That is a slap in the face.

I advise, invest, and launch technology companies, helping others achieve “someday” today.

And yes, I bought the T shirt.

  1. Someday I’m going to be a flight instructor… someday.

  2. Someday I will start writing the book in my head … will it be today (!) – Thanks Bill, I am going to try and start today ….

  3. The other aspect to “someday” is that your tomorrows eventually run out.

    Hi Bill
    This one struck a cord right across the Atlantic. Since reading this – I moved on work wise to the role I hoped to get someday! Simon and I got the church blessing – we were planning for someday … and this weekend we took delivery of our new VW camper van that we dreamed of getting someday …
    tired, skint but feeling somehow more content that each today counts … thanks for being my bus driver from all those miles away🙂

  5. Someday I’m going to buy that tee shirt.

  6. Today I’m reminiscing about some hilarious holiday parties at Information Dimensions and OpenText. ‘Tis the season to be jolly.

    Thanks for the memories!

  7. While attending the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, MD we were in a small gift shop near Annopolis and I saw such a T-shirt with that saying and a back packer on it. Thinking that I would see many of them (the saying is so profound) I did not buy it only to learn that they can’t be found anywhere in New Mexico (my home state) or on the internet! To this day I regret not making that purchase.
