Unencumbered By My Old Nonsense

“Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely
and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered with your old nonsense."
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
[Classic post from 3-15-11]
Ralph Waldo Emerson said it so well: do your best and let the rest go. I've tried to follow that advice and go to sleep without anxiety having done what I could do for one day. I'm not alone.
Having read biographies of some of the most famous business icons of the 20th century, I found that a good number of them had this same philosophy. Some, like Conrad Hilton, even put a clock on it and would stop at a certain time and let it be what it will be until the next day brings a new opportunity.
Good Advice.
Spread Some Joy Today–give your best today while you can and let that be enough.
