Judge each day not by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.

There’s always tomorrow

I really should finish that report... but there’s always tomorrow. I need to start working out more often... but there’s always tomorrow. I really should return her phone call... but there’s always tomorrow.

There’s always tomorrow. And that is precisely the problem. If you put something off until tomorrow, guess what? There will always be another tomorrow, and another and another, ready and waiting for you to continue procrastinating.

While there is always another tomorrow, there will never be another opportunity to make the most of today. Once today is over, it is history. No amount of regret or sorrow or excuses will change it.

Today becomes a done deal in just a few hours. Right now is your golden opportunity to make it count.

— Ralph Marston
