This day

You will spend the hours in this day doing something. You can’t save them for later or avoid the passage of time. What you can do is to make the most of them.

Anything you want to accomplish will take some time. Perhaps it will take a great deal of time. So the sooner you get started, the better. The hours in this day will pass by, never to come again. Use them while they’re here!

Right now is your only opportunity to make the most of today. Soon, that special opportunity that is today will no longer be available to you. Use the time you have, when you have it. The hours will pass, and you will spend them doing something. Doesn’t it make sense to make the highest and best use of them?

This day is yours, but only for a while. Make the most of it right now.

— Ralph Marston
