Work Within the Constraints of Today

The words "tomorrow" or "next week" come up a lot in business but they aren't relevant to today. My dad used to always say, "Make a good deal today or implement a good idea today, don't wait for the perfect deal tomorrow because tomorrow never comes." So for me, I don't care about tomorrow. I focus on today. I operate within the constraints of today in terms of what I can get done today. Tomorrow is a new today which I will handle when it's today. 

Define your targets for the day and don't be reasonable about doing something tomorrow or even deferring things off to tomorrow. Only work within the constraints of today. You'll find that you can get a lot of things done by operating this way.
