“Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson, Collected Poems and Translations

Regardless of how the weekend went, tomorrow is a new day. Make it a point to drop one poor habit. Wake up early. Don’t hit snooze. Get the most important thing done in the morning and create positive momentum for the rest of your day.

Small, incremental improvements over the long haul is the path to personal development. I get off the path too. Writing these posts is a sort of release. Something getting me back on the right track. We all get off the path. Catch yourself before it becomes weeks or months. Each time is a lesson to learn, an experience to grow from.

Tomorrow is a new day. Make it great by living in the moment and tackling the most important things.
