Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.

Which one?

If you live this day to the fullest, there are regrets that you will never have to know. Make the most of each moment, and there are pains you will never need to experience.

Think of how many of your most difficult burdens are largely of your own making. By virtue of the actions you take on this very day, you can avoid so very many similar burdens in the future.

The things you do right now, and the things you fail to do right now, can affect every day for the rest of your life. That can either be a golden opportunity or a wicked curse, depending entirely of what you do with it.

Just imagine all the great and wonderful things you can begin to create right now. Just think of all the things you could do that would soon have you looking back on this day with gratitude and satisfaction.

Five years from now, you can look back on today and be overwhelmed with joy, or overwhelmed with regret. Now is the time when you can decide which one it will be.

— Ralph Marston
