American writer and historian, Will Durant once said,

Forget mistakes, forget failures, forget everything, except what you’re going to do now and do it.  Today is your lucky day.

There are times when our past threatens to rob us of our future.

When our mistakes and failures remind us of our frailty and inadequacies.

There’s a reason why the rear view mirror is smaller than the windscreen.

We are meant to look ahead, not over our shoulder.

We’re meant to focus on what we’re doing, not what we’ve done.

If we can manage that, today truly will be our lucky day.
