“Let us therefore set out whole-heartedly, leaving aside our many distractions and exert ourselves in this single purpose, before we realize too late the swift and unstoppable flight of time and are left behind. As each day arises, welcome it as the very best day of all, and make it your own possession. We must seize what flees.”
—SENECA, MORAL LETTERS, 108.27b–28a
Wherever the state we found ourselves in today it was brought about by our own past decisions. All the things we have done or the ones we did not. How we have reacted to the environment and people’s actions against us.
Since time is always against us, either because we are mortally bound by it or because while alive somebody else or something else will eventually prove to be more efficient and cost effective that us, we must focus all our thoughts and ideas, all our energy to act and execute, to better ourselves striving to achieve whatever it is we have in our hearts.
It starts now, today is the only time left to do it…
