Sunday Inspiration: The Best Time

the best time

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now.” -Chinese proverb

One of our speakers used that quote this week here at Chautauqua Institution, and it struck me as especially inspirational.

Instead of wallowing in guilt over what I haven’t done in the past — which I do from time to time — I need to use my energy to do what needs to be done here and now.

I can’t change the past but I sure as heck can create something useful and beautiful and powerful in the present. So can you.

What will we create?
