Attentive

Don’t leave yourself wishing you had been more attentive. Give your full focus to what you are doing.

The time to get it right is while you are doing it. Anything else sets you up for regret.

Clear your mind of distracting thoughts about what could have been, what should be, what might happen later. Direct your attention to what is, to what you’re doing, and to doing it well the first time.

You have exactly one opportunity to live each moment. Exercise that opportunity with care, with gratitude, with attention and competence.

Give your best to the moment while you are still in the moment. You have the power to make great progress if you’ll utilize that power each time you have the chance.

Be attentive to life as it happens. And you’ll give yourself increasingly valuable and meaningful matters to attend to.

— Ralph Marston
