Do Something Special Today

“Whatever you want to do, do it now. There are only so many tomorrows.” ~Michael Landon

In fact, there are no tomorrows. We only ever have today. As soon as tomorrow arrives it becomes today. This is important to think about. It’s very common to get stuck in a trap called “time”. Communities of people get trapped in the past. Disputes happen because people want to revenge past hurts – or people want justice for wrongs that happened long, long ago. On a singular level, people get caught up in their childhood upbringing and believe that it defines their entire life.

You Have Today. You Are Here. Do Something Special.

You Have Today. You Are Here. Do Something Special.

On the other extreme end of this is a paranoia about the future. Again, communities of people worry about what might happen. There are planning committees and entire corporations devoted to “what if” scenarios.  And, again on a personal level, people might behave today based on an imaginary worry about what might happen tomorrow.

There is definitely something to be gained from analyzing history, or our personal past. Hindsight is always 20/20 – meaning that when we look back, things are clear. While in that moment maybe we couldn’t understand the purpose or meaning of what was happening. Likewise, it’s to our benefit to plan fire drills and know what to do in case of an emergency. The problem comes when we remain in the past or the future for the majority of our existence.

The real urgency behind this quote by Michael Landon has nothing to do with living in the past, present or future. I simply wanted to illustrate the importance of today. You have today. You are here. Make something of it. Make every day something special. Nothing is gained from procrastination – except maybe some guilt and disappointment. Life is about living and you have today to live. Do something extraordinary every day and at the end of your life you’ll have lived one extraordinary life!
