If you were asked to choose between Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday which would you prefer? How would you choose? What are your priorities? Would you even consider what am I asking of you, or would you just pick one? And why?
I do not like this question, because answer to it does not lead anywhere. I am far from saying that the answer is not important but that given the answer there will not be any changes to ones life. If forced or with “way” to much time to ponder (I am on vacation) I would choose almost always Today.
Yesterday happened and there is little any of us can do about it. Tomorrow is for people that do not think that Today matters and do not have the courage to make a difference Now. Today is my kind of moment. I can try to settle things I had no excuse to skip Yesterday, attempt to ready myself for the next day, but most importantly I have a chance to Live and be Happy.
I was reminded some time ago that luck is defined as opportunity meeting preparation. We all know how an opportunity looked like Yesterday, we plan on some of them to happen Tomorrow. However unless is hits us right in the face and sometimes not even then will we see it Today. Today, is this very short time period between Yesterday and Tomorrow, where everything is happening and all that could go wrong got synchronized.
So how do you prepare for this magical opportunity that in some cases can make a huge difference for the rest of your life. Is there a protocol that would guarantee success? Many people seem to be convinced of that. There are many books and manual written to help the common man in succeeding (“Living ‘happy’ for materialistic Idiots”, etc). Did the people that we consider successful read any of them? I doubt it. They did what they where good at (loved) and the opportunity sought them out.
I consider myself lucky. Although I would love to sit on my butt, this won’t happen. Primarily because, I also think that, people make opportunities by the virtue of their character and if you make enough of them, just like the mess in your room, you bound to trip over one of them.
So which would you choose? You think your choice matters. Does it? Do you?
