Think thoughts that exert a positive influence on your actions. Gently let go of thoughts that waste time and needlessly push you into dark desperate places.
Your time is precious beyond any measure. Spend that time doing what you know is good, and right, truthful, helpful, appreciative and supportive of the wonder that is existence.
Every moment, every action has a cost. You are fully entitled and obligated to make sure each cost produces a genuine benefit.
That does not in any way give you an excuse to avoid the difficult pursuits. Rather, it summons you to focus the whole of your being on meaningful pursuits, as challenging and inconvenient as they may be.
You are here today to make real, meaningful, beneficial progress. Respect the miraculous nature of that opportunity, and spend this day doing what matters.
Do today’s work today. Pushing it into the future accomplishes nothing other than to increase its toil.
Address today’s problems today. They will only grow more complicated and intractable as time goes on.
Live today’s joys today. If you postpone them until later, they’ll go away and never come back.
Life is now. If you are to achieve, be happy, connect with others, and experience the wondrous richness that is yours to know, now is when to make it all happen.
Whatever dream you are following, or wish to follow, has its next essential step today. Now is when you do the amazing, fulfilling work to transform all you have experienced and accumulated into all you can be.
It is an opportunity that has no equal, that will never come again. Don’t let it pass you by.
