collector, creator, dreamer

“Without involvement, there is no commitment. Mark it down, asterisk it, circle it, underline it. No involvement, no commitment.” — Stephen Covey

What are you committed to?   Are you committed to doing better today than you did yesterday?

“You are always free to choose a different past or a different future.”  Richard Bach

Are you a person who laments the good ole days of the past?  Yesterday was better than today.  What would make today better and how would you make it better?

Today is like clay in our hands, it is moldable, shapeable and changeable.  We have the means to change today.   We are the creator of today.  You are the creator of now.   What do you want it to be?   It is hard work to create something from a lump of clay.  It takes time and effort along with an idea that is waiting to be formed.

Yesterday is more like fired clay it is now hard, formed, breakable and a relic of the past.  Perhaps it is the memory of yesterday we cling to.  Why?  Yesterday is a legacy.  It is a reminder of what we have done.   We can pick up the object we created and be amazed at what we are able to create, however each day is a new day and each day asks for its own creation.

Tomorrow is the dream of what can be.  It is not solid, it has no form, it is ethereal, just an object in our mind.  Until it takes form it can be shared with no one.

Are you a collector, creator or dreamer?
