A self-contained game plan for nothing.
Blessed are the compulsive for they shall be busy. Blessed are the procrastinators for they shall have nothing. More blessed are they who do the right thing at the right time for they have overcome the power of “later.” The story of ones life doesn’t appear as a book fully written. It proceeds one word at a time, one line at a time, one page at a time, and without prior permission. A Life Story is that journal wrote large. So, how does one seize the day? Perhaps it would be revealing to say “We are the sum total of our choices.” OK, so how has that worked out? If we continue to do what we have always done we may reasonably expect our future to resemble our past. Incidentally, our future will come to us in the same way as our past. It is not yet a book fully written and published. It will come to us one word at a time, one line at a time, one page at a time. Perhaps one could say, “We shall be defined by the sum total of our continuing choices.” Will we continue to do what we have always done?
The antidote for Later: NOW.
…behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of… —St Paul (2Cor 6:2)
