Don’t over-exaggerate yesterday.
Don’t over estimate tomorrow.
Pulitzer prize-winning journalist William Allen White observed, “Multitudes of people have failed to live for today. They have spent their lives reaching for the future. What they have had within their grasp today they have missed entirely, because only the future has intrigued them…and the first thing they knew the future became the past.”
The Lifebuilder’s Creed
Today is the most important day of my life.
Yesterday with its successes and victories, struggles and failures
is gone forever.
The past is past.
I cannot relive it. I cannot go back and change it.
But I will learn from it and improve my Today.
Today. This moment. NOW.
It is God’s gift to me and it is all that I have.
Tomorrow with all its joys and sorrows, triumphs and troubles isn’t here yet.
Indeed, tomorrow may never come.
Therefore, I will not worry about tomorrow.
Today is what God has entrusted to me.
It is all that I have. I will do my best in it.
I will demonstrate the best of me in it —
my character, giftedness and abilities —
to my family and friends, clients and associates.
I will identify those things that are most important to do Today
and those things I will do until they are done.
And when this day is done
I will look back with satisfaction at that which I have accomplished.
Then, and only then, will I plan my tomorrow,
Looking to improve upon Today, with God’s help.
Then I shall go to sleep in peace…content.
Benjamin Franklin rightly observed,
“One today is worth two tomorrows; what I am to be, I am now becoming.”
If you are proactive—you focus on Preparing .
If you are reactive—you focus on Repairing .
