Letting Our Past Get in the Way of Our Present

It’s easy to build up something in our mind and make it feel like it’s impossible to do it.

Like wishing we had something today that we had (or had more of) in the past—exercise routine, long stretches of free time, better friendships.

Or another example, building up the idea of something—a business idea, a celebrity, an outcome—that it becomes so big we don’t do it or get let down by its lack of imagination in reality.

But pining over things we used to have or used to be doesn’t get us anywhere today.

It’s better to start where you are.

And work small.

A Small start is not embarrassing or less than.

If you can’t be what you were in the past, then be something better today and in the future.
