There are two days in every week that one should never worry about; yesterday and tomorrow.
Yesterday no longer matters because it is dead and gone. No matter how much one would like to go back and change yesterday, it is forever beyond one’s control.
Tomorrow, with its uncertainties, promise or possible adversities is nothing more than a blank slate. Indeed, tomorrow is not promised to anybody, it is only a possibility.
The only day that matters is today. The awesome thing about today is that it is here, now, and one can actively do something about it. One can start a diet today, which if followed faithfully, will result in a much better tomorrow. However, that tomorrow will never come except for good decisions made during a continuing series of present moments. In order for any plan to work, one must keep in mind that the decisions made in the present will make themselves known only in the future. Each present moment, each decision, brings with it the possibility of bringing us towards the future that we envision or one which we will regret.
One can start writing a blog today. One can hire a new employee today. One can make amends for past offenses today. One can start a new marketing campaign today. All one has to do is decide today, here in the present – now.
I have been planning, for the past months, to start writing a weekly e-mail newsletter. I planned it yesterday (when my yesterdays were still today), I am going to send it out tomorrow. However, I am going to write it today.
What are positive steps are you going to take today to make your tomorrow a better day than yesterday? What vision of the future are you going to start creating today? What decisions can you make now? Good Luck!
