The future starts today, not tomorrow.
– Pope John Paul II
Meaning of this quote:
Don’t wait for tomorrow, understand that today is all we have. Our future depends on how well we use our present moments. Our tomorrow depends on what we do today.
When we procrastinate, we tend to put off things for tomorrow that we should have been doing today. While we procrastinate, we forget that all we have is today, since tomorrow will be the same as today.
The future starts from today, not tomorrow. The very next second from now is the future, isn’t it?
If you’re planning to do something, the right time to get started is now. Don’t let waiting for the right time keep you from getting started. Don’t put things off until tomorrow, because when we do that, we keep putting it off until tomorrow, and that tomorrow never comes.
The first day of the future is today, not tomorrow
Today is the start of the future, it begins right now, at the very next second. The future lies in today, not tomorrow. Today’s actions will pave the way for tomorrow’s success.
The best way to get things done is to take action today instead of postponing them until tomorrow.
Never leave anything for tomorrow that you should have accomplished today. It isn’t just about getting something done, it is also about getting it done at the right time.
It is impossible to stay motivated all the time. While we all procrastinate, it’s a deadline that motivates us to persevere, so setting a deadline is important when you don’t have one.
The way one uses their present moments determines their future. One can either utilize it by regretting past actions or worrying about the future. The question is, can that result in a fulfilling future?
Your present reflects your past, and your future will reflect your present. The best way to prepare for tomorrow is to do your best today. Great things happen when one strives to improve every day.
All we have is the present moment; everything else has either passed or is yet to come. The key is not to take today for granted in hope of a better tomorrow. The present is all we have to reshape our future.
