NOW — The Missed Opportunity

Tim McDonald

--

I was consumed with reading email newsletters today. Many of them sharing lessons of what has happened in the past. It reminded me of school when we had to take history classes. I was told it was required so we didn’t repeat the mistakes of our past. As I learned more, it was more so we could learn from the lessons of the past. After I was done reading things about the past, I started thinking of what I was going to do today. The plans for the upcoming week and even events happening later this year that I should be starting to make travel arrangements for. Then it hit me. I was living my life in the past and future and forgot about the moment in life, right now, that presents the opportunity for the future.
