Michael Newman (Adam Sandler) is given a special remote control. If he’s doing something unpleasant or monotonous he can fast-forward though it.
He begins fast forwarding through a lot of lifes mundane tasks, such as driving through traffic and paper work.
He also fast-forwards to his next promotion – thinking that once he gets there he can “enjoy” his family.
This magic remote becomes programmed to automatically “fast forward” through things that were previously skipped.
There are periods of the show where he fast-forwards ten or more years. He then is scrambling trying to figure out where he is and how the heck he got there.
There’s a very strong lesson to be learned in “Click” …
Now is where it’s happening. Now is all that we have.
Do things you enjoy – and if you haven’t previously enjoyed it, then learn to have fun while doing it … Don’t just look for the rewards it will bring.
You want a clean house but hate cleaning?
Want a shiny car but hate washing and waxing it?
Make a game of it, Learn to enjoy cleaning the house, washing the car, shopping or whatever ….
You can sing and dance and act silly while cleaning or washing your car. Remember how much fun it was when you were a kid?
Enjoy the company of whomever you are in the presence of.
Show the people you love how much you care by spending quality time with them.
Stop trying to fast forward to “someday”.
Love, Live, Laugh and Be Happy with where you are now.
Note that I’m not saying you shouldn’t have goals. As humans we need to continually be moving towards something. I’m just saying to enjoy the journey.
