Plan for tomorrow - Live For Today!

Hold That Thought; How many times have you caught yourself saying “In a minute” or “I can’t I’m busy right now”?


I’m a firm believer in planning, if you don’t have a plan it’s more challenging to get where you are going.  A plan is a map with directions and we all know what happens if you don’t have directions.  Something just as important as planning is living for today.  How many times have you caught yourself saying “In a minute” or “I can’t I’m busy right now”, only to let time slip and miss out on special moments never to be gotten back. 

 I truly believe we are all just visitors here, and when you are a visitor somewhere don’t you take the time to enjoy where you are?  Time goes by whether you do something with it or not.  So make your plans, draw your maps and follow your directions and if there is a chance to make a pit stop, do it!  Time in the pits with the crew (or by yourself) is just as important to the journey.

Love the advice! "Time in the pits with the crew (or by yourself) is just as important to the journey." Made a plan for a day off!

We have all seen the the words "Plan ahead" bent to fit on the edge of sheet of paper. Not everything has to be part of a plan, some things just happen naturally, such as going to the toilet or making fried eggs. But building a house does. We do many things on the spur of the moment, but only a few are planned. Age is also a factor. Doing something for the first time is harder than doing the same task for the 50th time. The first time may require planning, but not much later on. Finally, being 74 doesn't mean I have to plan my own funeral at this time. I hope to live at least another 26 years and get a letter from the President of the USA saying congratulations.
