Today I sit before you in awe that the year 2010 begins in less than two weeks. That the first decade of the twenty-first century is nearly text in a history book. I turned a young 29 yesterday and it seems the older I get, the faster time accelerates.
We look forward to the future everyday, yet so much as we are caught up in planning the future do we forget to live in the now. Right now, you are reading these words that I've typed. You are learning, discovering and building your own ideas and innovations.
You are likely ahead of the curve because you are investing in the now. To stay ahead, you must continue to invest your focus on the now.
The people who aren't ahead of the curve likely aren't investing much into the now. They may plan great things or have great ideas, yet somehow making the decision right now to build or finish their ideas slips them by. Don't fall into this trap. Take responsibility for yourself in the now and focus your efforts on doing the work required to complete the project at hand.
Each of us has twenty-four hours in a day. What will you do with the gift of time you have been given?
