The Benefits of Focusing On Today


This may seem like a simple, obvious topic. But the important things usually are.

I’ve stopped worrying about later in the week. Oh, I’ll put down reminders and mark my calendar. But I don’t think about it.

I focus on today. What can I get done today?

Because that’s all I’ve got. I don’t even have that; I might have a heart attack and die in an hour. Who knows?

But I’m pretty sure I have today. I can focus on today. I can plan today, and work today. Fill the day with Good Work, Done.

Because if I spend much time thinking about tomorrow, today seems less important. There’s always tomorrow. Right?

But our life isn’t made up of tomorrow; it’s made up of thousands of todays. And if we don’t focus on those todays, they slip by and we regret the passage of time.

So, let us focus on today. And make today rock.
