It is never too late to put your day on track

“The first hour is the rudder of the day.” — Henry Ward Beecher

All due respect to Mr. Beecher, but he is wrong. If you adopt his belief, you will convince yourself that the day is lost when the first hour does not go as planned.

Instead, should your day fall apart, put it back together as soon as you are able, and carry on as if nothing happened — no matter what time it is. If you eat junk food for breakfast, that’s not a free pass to eat junk food all day; you can eat a healthy lunch. If you sleep in, that’s not an excuse to fuck around all day; you can get showered and abridge your schedule.

The day is never lost… unless you say it is.
