I love the elegance of what John W. Gardner, an American writer and statesmen said, "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."
Is it really that simple?
Hard to believe. But.... what if it is?
What if it is all in my decisions?
As my Aunt Marie Therese would say, What to do? What to do?
Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
What if I decide to make today the best day of the rest of my life? What if I decide that today I am going to....
and then I list the vital, most important, most relevant thing I can do to take me one baby step, or one giant leap forward toward my goal of using my unique gifts to create a world where human beings dance freely in love, joy and harmony.
What if I decided that today I must do that one thing. No more stalling. No more dragging my heels. No more rationalizing why today is not the best day to do it.
What would I do with my time?

Today, I will pick up the phone and make that important call I've been putting off.
Today, I will spend one hour writing the outline for a course I plan on teaching.
Today, I will use my Six Points of Power in everything I do and say and think. (1. Pay attention. 2. Speak the truth. 3. Be responsible for my life. 4. Ask for what I want. 5. Keep my agreements. 6. Create value in all things.
Today, I will BE committed to DO what it takes to HAVE what I want. I will be the creative, powerful, magnificent human being I am, fearlessly living the life of her dreams in the here and now because tomorrow is yet to unfold.
The question is: What would you do if you knew you could not fail? What will you do today to live the life of your dreams?
