“Where do you want to go today?” was Microsoft’s advertising slogan in 1994.
Back then, phones weren’t very “smart” and connecting to the internet made sounds that rivaled scratching fingernails across a chalkboard.
Nevertheless, it was quite a clever question to ask. Their point was that with a Microsoft-powered computer you could accomplish anything you wanted (high-def video streaming aside).
Each morning when you wake up, ask yourself that question:
“Where do you want to go today?”
Every decision you make today to take care of yourself is yours, and only yours.
The decision to not take care of yourself is also yours.
GIven all of your priorities and work schedule, it might not always feel that way.
The Romans had a similar phrase with “Carpe diem” (seize the day). There is no other way around it - you own your day, nobody else.
Better yet, you can set yourself up for success the day before.
Plan ahead (and even prep) your day tomorrow, so that when you wake up it’s not even a question.
