"Today is the house."

"We have the power to keep yesterday in its place
                 and make the most of today.
     Yesterday was the foundation, but today is the house."

Wisdom of the Sequichie of the Cherokees

The Roman poet Horace may have been the first one to say "carpe diem."

The lyric Cherokee version above is pretty good advice.

Here is Mahatma Gandhi's offering: "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."

My version: Do what's at the top of your list. Don't do the other stuff.

And my trusty personal advisor adds: "Make every day a bonus day."

Wisdom of Chief Standing Bear
