... and days, weeks, months, even years pass us by.
So do our dreams.
Don't let today be a day you will look back and regret. Whatever you've been planning, whatever you've imagined, whatever you've dreamed of -- get started on it today. If you want to start a business, take the first step. If you want to change careers, take the first step. If you want to expand or enter a new market or offer new products or services, take the first step. Get started. Do something. Do anything.
Otherwise today is gone. Once tomorrow comes today is lost forever.
Today is the most precious asset we own.
In the clip below, my buddy Michael Hirst, screenwriter of the two Cate Blanchett "Elizabeth" movies and writer and executive producer of the Showtime series "The Tudors," does a much better job expressing what I'm trying to convey. If you're not familiar with the show, Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys-Myers) speaks to his closest friend, the Duke of Suffolk (Henry Cavill), about how time is our greatest enemy:
We only have a limited number of "todays."
Don't let this today slip away.
