What you do today

What you do today, or fail to do today, you’ll live with for the rest of your life. The way you live today can create new burdens, or it can create new treasures.

The future may seem like it’s a long way off. Yet it is relentlessly heading your way, and what you do today will have an enormous impact on the quality of that future.

Today, right now, in this moment, in this place, you have an opportunity. It’s an opportunity with great leverage over your entire life.

Today is your opportunity to choose how you will live. Today is your opportunity to give time, attention, effort and substance to those things you truly value.

If you merely wish to have a great life someday, your wishes alone simply won’t be enough. Yet today you are able to act on those wishes, those goals, those desires, and to really, truly put yourself on the path to their fulfillment.

What you do today is absolutely crucial. What you can do today, right now, is get to work.

— Ralph Marston
