Long after the moment passes, the joy continues. Long after the lesson is learned, wisdom keeps growing.
What you do in this moment brings value not only to this moment. Much of the value you create now can stay with you always.
The truth of who you are, and of what you do, accumulates as time goes on. That's why staying focused on what's truly important can bring such spectacular results.
The sooner you make the effort, the more its power can be multiplied. Value continues to build on top of value, so the best thing you can do right now is create some more of it.
Long after this moment is gone, you can be profoundly thankful for the way you lived it. This is your chance to make it count, now and long after.
