Satisfaction or regret

What can you begin to do right now that will have you looking back on this day with satisfaction instead of regret? What can you do today so at the end of the day you will feel you’ve done your best?

Satisfaction and regret do not just materialize out of thin air. They are the direct results of what you choose to do with your time.

Decide how you would prefer to feel at the end of the day, and live the day accordingly. If you wish to be satisfied with what you’ve done, now is the time to act in that direction.

You can create a day that you know has been well lived. No matter what things outside your influence may happen or fail to happen, you can experience the satisfaction of doing your best with it all.

It’s not that difficult to create a day you can be happy and proud and satisfied to have lived. It’s a matter of intention, and it’s based on what you do right now.

Imagine looking back on this day, and imagine exactly what you would like to look back on. Now is your chance to make it so.

— Ralph Marston
