It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.

The only day

Live as though today is the only day that has ever been and the only day that will ever be. For, in some ways those things are true.

Today is the day that is here now, the one you have with which to work. You cannot change the days in the past, nor can you yet reach the future. Yet today is more than enough. Anything you could possibly dream or desire, you can begin to create for your world today.

Imagine the wonder and awe you would feel if today was the only day you had ever experienced. Imagine the sense of urgency you would have if today was the only day that you would ever be able to experience.

Go through this day with that sense of awe, with that driving urgency. Treat this day as if it were the only day ever. And by doing so, you will make it the best day ever.

— Ralph Marston
