The Future is Where You Will Spend the Rest of Your Life

Home Inspector with Square One Home Inspection

While doing some scanning on the radio in my truck this morning I heard a very funny commercial. The commercial was for a radio program for a guy some of you may have heard of. Mr Jeff Foxworthy. Very fun guy.

Anyway, one his characters stated that the future is where you will spend the rest of your life. This got me to thinkin' about the future. The choices we make today will either pave the way there or create roadblocks for us. Every choice we make today will affect us somehow down the road.

In short, try to make the  best choices that you can and spend your time wisely. You never know what the future may hold, but you will spend the rest of your life there.

Have a great weekend everyone!!

We all wish we could look into a crystal ball and see the future, and in a sense, we can do it.  Picture in your mind what you want your future to be, write it down and study it, then do what you need to do today to help create the future you see for tomorrow.  Every day is critical, so use your time wisely.

I love Jeff Foxworthy these words are so true-we do need to make our choices wisely they will and do have an impact on our future.

I have always liked that quote - I don't recall where I heard it first.

Thanks for the sharing quote, it so true and unfortunately we all sometimes forget the decisions we make will dictate the future.

And, it's not just the big decisions that help form our path; sometimes seemingly trivial choices have a huge impact. Every action, every choice sets something in motion; that's why it's important to give attention to  each one.

And that is absolutely right!

My problem is not knowing what decisions will turn out best for the future.  I think the 8 ball I have is worn out.  It keeps coming up "I have no idea".

Thanks for the comments everyone. It truly makes you sit back and think about your plan for the day.

PS   Shake the 8 ball a little more Jack, that may help.

Hi Ian - How are you???? So nice to see you back posting. Can you believe that it is August already!!!!! I just love the quote - We cannot live life in the rear-view mirror - It is all about tomorrow, but we must do all we can do today to shape our dreams for tomorrow.
