"The start of every day is a new opportunity to re-access our values and to re-establish what is most important to us. The time from opening our eyes and having our first thought is sufficient space to determine the quality of our day and life ahead; enough time to shape our future to its most content.
Imagine being told with absolute certainty that you have only one day left to live. What would you do? Whom would you contact? How would you spend the brief time remaining? Only those things that you then choose to do, only those people whom you then seek to contact represent the most important aspects of your life. It is 'they' and 'those things' that make up your essential wants.
Now, knowing that you have every expectation of enjoying many years ahead, are you still going to do those those very same things and make contact with those very same people as you were when you imagined your last day on earth? If not, you have a problem that requires your urgent attention, but if 'yes', you have already made as good a start as you can to your new day." William Forde: October 6th, 2017
