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
Before 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?
