The Future

C295695 mHere was The Grasshopper’s holiday weekend message: “The only thing we know for sure about the future is that it’s not here now.”

It sounds like it could be a pronouncement from “Captain Obvious” until we dig a bit deeper.

We spend lots of time contemplating a time that doesn’t yet exist and spend too little time in a time that does – Now.

Our future is quite dependent on what happens now. We can have more effect on our future by paying attention to what we’re doing now. Wishing away what’s here now will only insure its future.

The real message is this: You can wish for the future but you can’t count on those wishes if you don’t take any measurable action now.

“I wish my _________ would ___________” will have a greater chance of happening if you climb out of the pseudo safe haven of the wishing well into the light of day. The view here is panoramic and presents more choices to act on not found in the dark hole of wishing.

We hear lots of advice about “planning for the future.” It would be more solid counsel if we changed one word – “doing for the future.”

There’s no harm in daydreaming unless it’s your lifestyle. It’s quite fun to craft a magical future from time to time. It gives our imagination a good workout. But things will not work out if that’s all you do.

I’ll end this post with some sage advice from author, Wayne Dyer: “Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.”

All the best,
