Time Management Tip

The two days you don't have to worry about.

There are two days in every week about which we don't have to worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension. Follow this simple (don't get simple and easy mixed up) concept and see how it can reduce your stress and give you a sense of having much more time.

One of these days is Yesterday.

Yesterday has gone -- with its mistakes and cares, its faults and blunders, its aches and pains. Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control. All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday. We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said. Yesterday is gone.

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow,

Tomorrow cannot be lived today. But worrying about tomorrow's possible adversities and burdens stops us from experiencing today.

Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control. Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds; but it will rise. Until it does, we have no stake in tomorrow, for it is as yet unborn.

This leaves only one day: Today.

Anyone can fight the battles of just one day. It is only when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities -Yesterday and Tomorrow - that we break down.

It is not the experience of Today that overloads us with stress, it is remorse and bitterness for something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring. Live this one full day -- Today.

Carpe Diem! Seize this Day!

"Yesterday is gone, tomorrow may never come - today is all there is - that's why it's called the present." author unknown.

Have the time of your life this week.
