Yesterday is gone.
Tomorrow has not yet come.
We have only today.
Let us begin.
Affirmation: I make up for lost time by being efficient.
I agree with the saying that “time waits for no one.” Past experiences have shown me the folly of procrastinating and wasting time.
Now, my focus on a day to day basis is efficiency. I avoid taking time for granted by using every opportunity and every opportune moment to work towards personal or professional goals.
I know that external factors can come into play and disrupt my game plan, but I avoid allowing challenging circumstances to cause a major shift in my focus. Certainly the easiest thing to do when my mission is delayed is to give up, but I realize that such a response brings an outcome other than what I desire. So I renew my focus.
In such situations, being temporarily sidetracked means that I have the opportunity to resume my mission efficiently. I see it as an opportunity to come up with a new way to work faster, better, and produce a more superior result.
Making up for lost time is something I do without complaining because I always focus on what I want to see waiting for me at the end of the tunnel.
Today, I commit to keep going.
I know that my spirit of perseverance can only result in reaping good rewards at the end of the road.
