I had no idea what I was going to write about this month until I watched the tragedy unfold in Pittsburgh. I’m sure each of the victims of the shooting didn’t wake up thinking this was their last day on earth . . . but for eleven people, it was (some Holocaust survivors).
This is so obvious, but I’ll say it anyway. Many of us think we have all the time in the world to do this, fix that, or go there. Who knows what tomorrow will bring? By all means, plan for tomorrow, but live for today.
Attached is something I created for myself. It’s a balance sheet to make sure we pay attention to what we have right now. Sure, there’s the things we want, but there is also the things we already have that are often overlooked. Hopefully this will help you (and me) stay focused on what we have now.
