It’s easy to get “stuck” on yesterday’s losses, missed opportunities, or on outcomes we hoped would have gone differently.

Yesterday ended at midnight, and today is a new day to refocus your energies, concentration, and passion. However, it’s time for some tough love: it’s time to move on and make a plan for today.

You know what you need, more than I do. What can you commit to as you spend time reflecting on your day? Here are ideas to get you started, but come up with your own to ensure you end today knowing you did the best you could.

Today, I will:

  • Make better decisions
  • Add value to another person
  • Be kinder
  • Express gratitude
  • Learn something new
  • Be more aware
  • Ask more questions
  • Express humility
  • Be selfless
  • Give more
  • Practice discipline
  • Bring more clarity
  • Think more
  • Create
  • Invest my time — not spend it

Remember, tomorrow is never guaranteed, so don’t waste time on the past. Be a better leader, a better friend, a better spouse, a better parent, and learn from yesterday so you can make today your masterpiece.
