One day at a time please…

In Advice about Life on January 11, 2014 at 2:29 pm
The successful person learns to live in the present only, but always headed toward next time. Live a day at a time & do a job at a time. Then go on a next time. That makes sense, But, unhappily, lots of people don’t do that. Instead, they live in the past, present, and future all at the same time. What an error to waste mental energy brooding over past events or worrying about problems that might develop at some future time and then again might not.
Never waste a moment on yesterdays. Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well & serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.
