To Do or not To Do

"The past does not equal the future.
Because you may have failed a moment ago,
all day today,
or for the last six months,
or for the last sixteen years,
or for the last fifty years of your life
doesn't mean anything.
All that matters is
what are you going to do now?"

  - Anthony Robbins

I love Condoleezza Rice. I have watched a couple of interviews where the liberal, left wing person interviewing her kept trying to nail her on questions about what could or should have been done differently concerning the war in Iraq. With her unmistakable class she answered "What we know today cannot affect what we did yesterday; it can only affect what we do tomorrow."  You go Condi.

Here it is on video.


Now - what we know today concerning our health/activity level/eating cannot affect how we ate/exercised yesterday but it can affect what we do beginning now. Are we going to continue regretting/wishing/mourning over the past and what we should or should not have done or are we ready to use that information to affect what we do beginning now? Are we going to wait until in the morning so we can finish off the cookies and ice cream in peace today or are we going to realize that a day can begin at any point? Tomorrow at exactly this time will be exactly one day away. How's that for blowing a perfectly good excuse out of the water? I saw this statement framed on the wall of one of the banks where I deliver deposits - didn't see an author's name. "If we really want to do something, we will find a way; if we don't want to do something; we will find an excuse." NO MORE EXCUSES.

"Winning is not a some time thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while; you don't do things right once in a while; you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit, so is losing..." – Excerpt from Vince Lombardi's speech, "What it takes to be #1"

  1. I agree - Condoleezza Rice is a class act, and I love how she doesn't let the liberal "journalists" rattle her. Probably why you don't see her on as many interview shows as many other Republican leaders.
