Today Is The First Day of Your Life
Reading one of my favorite magazines (SUCCESS) early this morning. Great article on Entrepreneurship. Quick profile on Jeff Bezos and Amazon. I guess he did a video on “Everything I know, and it’s a short list.” (I need to do the same thing.) He concludes with this:
“The final thing I know, it’s always DAY 1.”
This is kind of a running joke with my youngest son, Taggart. Every morning when dropping him for school, the last thing I’d say was:
“Remember. TODAY is the FIRST DAY of the rest of your life.”
[He would look at me like any other 14-year-old and say, “Huh?”]
First Day. Day 1. Today. This is a great time of the year to move forward with this kind of attitude. Re-Invention… Re-Design… Re-Imagine… begins TODAY.
This Eskimo proverb provides a great metaphor.
“Yesterday is ASHES.
Tomorrow is WOOD.
TODAY is FIRE.”
