Yesterday Influences Today

The one with the primary responsibility to the individual’s future is that individual.
Christian Science Monitor 

How has your today been influenced by what you did yesterday? Yesterday I was too busy to invite someone to come to a concert with me and use an extra ticket. Today I ended up going to the concert alone and wasting the other ticket. I missed sharing the experience and the opportunity to spend some time with a friend. I felt guilty that the extra ticket was wasted and the money to buy it was wasted as well.

On a more positive note, yesterday when I finished my work for the day, I went through my notes and calendar to make a to-do list for today. This morning I was able to jump into my work and wasn’t distracted by having to remember dozens of things or looking for a phone number or piece of paper with notes on it. I was able to proactively plan a number of small items to get them accomplished very efficiently in thirty minutes.

What can you do today that will make tomorrow a better day for you? When we take responsibility today, we affect our tomorrow and determine our future.

Money Saving Tip

saving moneyBefore you buy anything on sale, ask yourself—do I want this or do I need this? What would be the consequence of not buying it? How long will I have to work to pay for it? What are three other things I could do with this money? Am I willing to sacrifice those things to buy this item?
