“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”Malcolm X
Daily habits allows us to focus on the now, versus the someday.
There is no such thing as ‘someday’. Someday is a myth. Someday turns into years, which turns into never. And unfortunately, someday usually turns into regrets.
Don’t take me wrong. We can’t do it all now. I’m not giving you (or me) the thumbs to do everything all at once now. And we don’t want our ‘somedays’ clouding us up in the moment. We still need to prioritize what’s more important in our lives, which requires opportunity costs. But if we really want something to happen, or we really want to get be great at something, what better way than to work towards it each and every day?
We may not be doing as much as we would like each day, but at least we are doing something. Something meaningful that adds up. Something meaningful today.
We can’t control whether or not a misfortune or random accident happens. We could randomly get hit by a metro bus tomorrow (knock on wood) and there goes our ‘someday’.
Hone your skills today.
Work on your business today.
Work on your dreams today.
Start eating healthy today.
Start taking care of yourself today.
Give meaning to your life today.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
