Look to this day…

January 1, 2009

…as we enjoy the first day of a New Year, I wanted to share something sent to me by a friend. Food for thought indeed:

‘Look to this day,

For it is life,

The very life of life.

In its brief course lies all

The realities and verities of existence,

The bliss of growth,

The splendour of action,

The glory of power –

For yesterday is but a dream,

And tomorrow is only a vision,

But today, well lived,

Makes every yesterday a dream

of happiness

And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day.’

– Kalidasa, Indian poet & playwright, Fourth century A.D.

Particularly powerful for us all as we attempt to do business in a challenging and fear-gripped global economy…
