Because today is the most important day on your calendar, it’s the only day you can control. It’s the only day you can live.

Because today is the most important day on your calendar, it’s the only day you can control. It’s the only day you can live. – Coach Bennett, Nike
For those who know me personally, I am a planner and a thinker. My mind is always going – and usually focusing someplace in the future. In some cases, this serves me exceptionally well. In some cases, I miss what is right in front of me.
When I focus too far in the future, I miss opportunities to make a difference right now. When I try to live in the future, I risk missing the present. I need to be more discipline about living in the moment . . . about the influence my behavior has right now.
Only you can control your behavior in the now. We think and plan for the future, but right now, is the moment that you act. Don’t let the now – don’t let today – pass you by.
