It’s easy for ambitious people to plan ahead and forget to truly enjoy the moment.

It seems we always have to be somewhere to be, set new goals or work a new project to work on, and see everyone else racing ahead.

How do we keep up?

I used to panic seeing competitors being so productive. I would force my work through just for the sake of it.

But in reality they were no faster than me – in many cases I noticed they were heading in the wrong direction.

I have learnt that it is better to move slowly in the right direction than 100 mph in the wrong direction. It’s a long way back…

Whilst it is important to keep an eye on the future, and have a vision and roadmap – we also need to remember that the days take care of the years.

What will you do today that you will thank yourself for in the future?
