Tomorrow never comes

Dear Max,

In an odd twist, you gave me this advice yesterday: This is tomorrow because I want it to happen today.

This statement stopped me in my tracks. Now, normally kids are kicking and screaming at your age, but you are an expert negotiator. The idea that “tomorrow never comes” has been around for a long time. In fact, it’s the title of an Elvis song from the 1970s. The idea is that tomorrow is an excuse.

Tomorrow is not an actual day. It’s like the sign that says, “Free beer, tomorrow.” It’s always updating itself to push it off one more day. Today, however, is an actual day. And, it’s the perfect day to start doing, thinking, or feeling exactly what you want to do. 

Remember your own advice, and keep in mind that you can learn something from anyone, anywhere, and at any time.

Love,

Dad
