Stick to the “Done-Dids”

What you don’t want to do is to look back on your life while uttering the empty phrase, “If only I….”

What you “should have” done, and what you “could have” accomplished while arriving on today’s page of the calendar is yesterday’s news. Whatever opportunity you clearly missed is long gone. Yesterday is a memory, tomorrow a distant dream. Today is your reality. What are you planning to do today to make a difference? Make your answer count, so tomorrow when you look back at today, you can be proud of what you accomplished.

I recall a TV commercial showing a grandfather surrounded by three young children. He is holding a toy Harley Davidson motorcycle and telling his grandchildren about the days he was thinking about riding into the sunset on two wheels with their grandma hugging on for dear life. One of the kids asked him if he owned a Harley. With remorse in his voice, the grandfather sheepishly replied that he had invested in aluminum-siding instead. The kids immediately stood up and retreated to seek more exciting experiences from grandma. Cut to a close-up of the old guy’s face. The old man looked dejected. I will always remember that commercial. “If only he had …”

I have nothing against aluminum siding, but the lesson is clear: Eliminate the should-haves, would-haves, could-haves and focus on the “done-dids.”
