The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time.
-- Dean Acheson


Monday, June 14, 1999


Anyone who is alive is constantly changing. Indeed, it is change which largely defines life. Every part of you is always changing. Your moods change from day to day, hour to hour. Your body changes. Your thoughts, relationships, expectations and surroundings continue to change.

In all that change there is enormous opportunity. Change is a fact of life. It will happen whether you do anything or not. Growth, progress, achievement and success are all forms of change. Change can take these positive forms when it is intentionally controlled and directed. The energy of change can either lift you up or push you down. The distinction is not based on change itself, but on what you make of it.

Changes will happen. You cannot avoid them. To do so would be to avoid life itself. Instead, see the opportunity in every change. Direct the unstoppable energy of change to the purpose of your choice. Embrace the changes and seize their ever-present opportunities.

— Ralph Marston
