“Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present“ by Roger Babson is a popular adage that inspires thought.
Truly, time is an ever-forward moving phenomenon that could not be halted or interrupted. We are able to alter what we do with time but we can never influence the movement of time. Whether we chose to sleep or work all day, a night will pass and a night will come.
What we do with time, however, has everything to do with our future as stated by Babson above. Our future is hopeful or doomed depending on what we are doing with the passing moments. Do not waste any moment in your life!
We could always go back to former things we did wrong and correct them. But remember, that lost moment/time is gone forever. You will have to borrow a moment or time you would have used for something else to correct the the wrong. In a sense, we shall always be a moment behind time with one wrong corrected. In that regard, take time to analyse your steps carefully before undertaking any event.
Time lost is never gained!
