Quote Roulette #18

“The future, including what’s left of today, is a blank canvas. What will you create?”

– Michael Hyatt

So true, but in the present moment we often cannot see it that way. All we can see is what we’re reacting to. We are getting pwned literally by what we’re caught up in. No future sight at all and not in control.

If we could just see the future as clearly as we see the minutes we’re caught up in. I’ve heard our present moments very often can create the future. I like to think we’re more in control of our future than that. We can make it what we want. We just have to look up from what and where we’re at to see the blank canvas in front of us.

We drive the ship and where it goes. I once read that if you were a captain of your ship and you adjusted the angle of your ship by just 1% off course, you’d end up in a completely different place than where you planned to arrive.

Sometimes I get the feeling there is nothing more I can do. The day is shot. Yet, anything, even a minute that is left, is something we choose to do something incredible with. Tracking my evening time wasting habits I noticed there was an incredible amount of time I could do something more with than vegging out. I changed the ship by 1% to see where’d I go. I found myself with more control than I thought and more time to do what I love.

Choice. It always comes down to that. I get sometimes we just don’t have anything left. We’re spent. But, if you knew when your death was going to happen down to the day and minute, I’m sure you’d make better decisions with how you spent any time you were gifted with. It’s a choice. It’s not until we have no perceived power of our choices that we decide to change.

Not sure where this quote was going to take me, but that’s what I was thinking about. I want to make every minute I can be something. Time is a zero-sum game and you can’t just find more minutes like you can change under the couch cushions. Once the minutes are gone, they’re gone.
