Now Is The ONLY Time You Have

In my blog post last week I talked about the fact that we are always choosing how we spend our time and focus our energy. Each moment of our lives we have an opportunity to do something and make something happen.

This is a follow up and it is a new video I created originally to get myself motivated. It turned into a pretty big project and I am sharing with you today in hopes that it gives you some added motivation/inspiration for the things you are working on in your life right now:

    Great video man – dare I say one of your best?

    The point really hits home too, like my goal is to drink more coffee than any human ever has. I will start the quest right now.

    Seriously though – this is inspiring, it is a great way to start my morning.

    Great video, Justin….
    And, yes, we get to choose every single moment…therein lies our “freedom”.

    Hey Justin,

    This is a Great reminder.

    I write my monthly and yearly goals in the:
    – I am
    – I have

    It is what I am, not what I want to become.

      Hey Mukul

      That’s awesome. I have to admit that I used to do that more often than I have been recently…but it really works. Thanks for the reminder…that is a great goal setting strategy

    Great Video Justin. I’ll be sharing this.

      Awesome. Thanks a lot Alan. Hope you are doing well

    BTW – nice video itself – what software do you use for video?

    • Justin Popovic November 5, 2010 at 11:34 am #

      Thanks Steve.

      Here is how I made the video:

      – wrote the script in text file
      – narrated the words using my mic in garageband
      – added vocal effects and background music in garageband
      – created slideshow in keynote
      – used Screenflow to record the slideshow and did my best to time it with the audio
      – used Screenflow to mix the audio and video together
      – export to MOV ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi there,

    Got this link through Brad. A fantastic inspirational video. Straight to the point and the truth. Sometimes it is that first step thats the hardest.

    • Justin Popovic November 5, 2010 at 12:31 pm #

      Hey Andy. Thanks for the kind words. I agree the first step can be difficult. Whether it is fear, procrastination, laziness or otherwise. Once we take that first step, it is easy to keep the momentum going

  9. Chris Eh Young November 5, 2010 at 9:30 pm #

    Dude, that was awesome. I do believe you just inspired me to go make a video of my very own for my website, one minute at a time.

    • Justin Popovic November 5, 2010 at 9:33 pm #

      Excellent! I will be watching for that video ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Yusuf Chowdhury November 6, 2010 at 6:28 am #

    Amazing video indeed!

    • Justin Popovic November 6, 2010 at 6:36 am #

      Thanks for the feedback Yusuf…and for the tweet. I’m following you on Twitter now ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hey Tony

      Thanks for checking out the video and I’m glad you got some value from it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’ve always been a fan of The Slight Edge – and this video lends itself to the same idea of slight disciplines compounded over time to make all the difference in the world!

    GREAT one!

    Have a DYNAMITE day!

      Thanks Wes. I love the idea of small efforts compounded over time. It helps me do my best in each moment.

      Thanks for the great comment

    You keep raising the bar with the quality of your work.
    I can only agree with all the above comments.
    The famous Nike sloggan comes to mind when watching this “Just do It.”
    We all have enormous untapped power within each of us,sometimes it just taking that first step can be the toughest. Very inspirational. Thank you.

    • Justin Popovic November 6, 2010 at 6:14 pm #

      Glad you liked it Stan and thanks for your kind words. I appreciate you following my blog

  14. Allen Sayer November 8, 2010 at 8:05 am #

    Very simple, very concise and very motivational – thanks … time to spend some minutes on something progressive : )

    • Justin Popovic November 8, 2010 at 8:39 am #

      Hey Allen,
      Great! I hope those minutes lead to great successes for you!

  15. Marta Walsh November 9, 2010 at 2:46 pm #

    Simple and too the point.

    thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Lana November 10, 2010 at 7:43 pm #

    Wow…the real clincher for me was your comment re the hundreds of one-minute opportunities available even if you’ve slept in. A wonderful reminder for someone who gets caught up in an ‘all or nothing’ mentality at times.
    Thank you!
