Time counts down, not up

You never know how much time is left.

(Sorry to sound dire. Sorry to also speak the truth.)

This doesn’t mean you have to work like there’s no tomorrow, because as far as you know there is always a tomorrow (until there is not).

What this does mean, however, is that you need to always remind up yourself to do the right thing first, no matter what that is (there can be only one right thing, and only you can tell yourself what it is).

Don’t get lazy. Prioritize. Figure out the one right thing to do right now, and do it.

Don’t sleepwalk through your morning doing the same things over and over only because “that’s what I do.”

The clock is ticking. What is that one right thing to do first? Do it. Go!
