Midnight Motivations and Musings # 50…

Plan

Tomorrow is really not guaranteed any of us and that which we can do today no matter how little it is, is better done and when the following day comes, we do a bit more.

Experience has personally taught me lessons on how we rob ourselves through over-planning, procrastination and assumptions.

The future belongs only to those who live fully in their moments and take charge of each day as it comes.

We all know that the building blocks of a huge monument start with laying its base foundational stones.

So when you don’t put today’s stones in place, how exactly do you  plan to get to the tip of that pinnacle?

Like my people would say back home ‘it’s the firewood that you gather during the dry season, that you will use during the rainy season.

When you take care of today’s plans, tomorrow’s plan will take care of itself.

  1. How wonderful. Although I don’t envy those that have come close to death and survived it, I admire their change in perspective and new outlook on life. We only rent this world for a time before we must depart. Good post.

  2. Wonderful pertinent advice. Similar to my Mom who tells me to just take things day by day. I find the future is much easier to navigate like that. Thank you for sharing!

      • A few people have said that now. Honestly except for a few bloggers, all posts go to my junk mail including my own. Doesn’t matter if I say they’re not junk. And there is no reason behind who goes to junk and who doesn’t. It’s all good 🙂

  3. I think part of the excitment of life is in knowing our own mortality; not wishing then, to waste a moment! ‘The best laid plans of mice and men!’ ya know? Yet if we did nothing, nothing would always be the end result! Great post! You always stir up brain cells 🙂

  4. Wow, I was just thinking something like this to myself today. If I keep overplanning and perfecting the plan, and putting it off to do do, I will never get it done! Thank you so much for the inspiration.
