The Difference Between Today and Tomorrow

A few days ago I wrote about the difference between yesterday and today. 

That the relationship between yesterday and today was that our life is about the decisions we choose to take, and how history tends to repeat itself; If we tend to repeat our decisions, we won’t get very far. 

The difference between today and tomorrow is that we get chance. Today is our chance to do something we’re passionate about, and tomorrow is our chance to continue doing it. Tomorrow is about possibility and imagination—serious imagination; tomorrow is about seeing the world through a beginner’s lens again. 

Whenever we start something new, we take chances and we make assumptions about what could happen. We let our past experiences hang up in the air and we bring to life the what would happen ifs. 

Let your today be a choice to start something you care about, because tomorrow you’ll get to grow it further, and the next day, and the next. 

The difference between today and tomorrow is not much, but it gives us the choice of possibility. 


Communication is Scary

One of the most difficult things I find for myself is speaking out (go figure), hence the blog name.

Speaking out and speaking my thoughts is arguably one of the toughest things to do for myself. It’s uncomfortable, unnatural, and unnerving. 

Speaking your thoughts is also one of the most valuable skills one could have. If you do it right, when you find the right words to confront somebody, to negotiate and be able to tell your story in your own way, you become more able—more able to do things you didn’t think you would be able to do.

Being able to communicate yourself to the others is invaluable (not to mention it also makes for a better workplace environment). 


Tick Tock (Not TikTok)

In an “always-on” way of living, managing our time and allocating our energy to places that matter is not easy. 

When it comes to time management, we should ask, what do we want to put our time towards? 

If the answer is checking emails, liking another’s Instagram photo, sitting on meetings, waiting to be told what’s next, then maybe that’s why we’re having so many troubles managing our time. 

It’s no wonder we feel overwhelmed; there are so many micro-tasks we’ve been told to do. When we’re living in an “always-on” environment, notifications and messages disrupt our trains of thought more than we think. 

To manage our time better, we first need to know where our time is going.
