Breaking News! There is no more tomorrow!
"Attention everyone! Breaking News! There is no more tomorrow!
Cancel all plans for tomorrow because, well, there isn't one!"
What if you tuned into Channel 5 this morning and heard this? What you do? What would you think? Everything that you had carefully planned to start tomorrow, every appointment you scheduled for the rest of the week, CANCELLED! Only what you had done up to this point counts. Nothing that you planned to start next month after you got your "refund check", CANCELLED. Every person that you planned to spend time with next month, cancelled too! Why? Because there is no more next month!
Ofcourse this is all ficticious, but if you knew for a fact when your last day on this earth would be, wouldn't you have planned your life a little better? Are we not taking for granted the precious time that we have on this earth by putting important things off until tomorrow?
Why do we do that? Why do I do that?
Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
- Thomas Jefferson
