Robert Bruce: The Single Word that is Stealing Your Future

Now time for some weekend inspiration. Nothing beats the power of words; old powerful words that speak to your soul and your soul listens. Poets are masters of words, the "soul whisperers" and I bumped into this beautiful piece of poetry by American writer Robert Bruce. If you got something to do, do it NOW. MLK called it the "Fierce Urgency of Now" and Obama popularized it. Oh Poor Obama, those were good old days.

Words, nothing can beat power of words. Not even the internet, pictures or domains. Even the Bible says "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Now, enjoy Robert Bruce's poem and acknowledge the fierce urgency of NOW! Tomorrow is not yours to decide.

You can talk all you want about what you’ll write Tomorrow, next week, and next year.
It matters very little.
Tomorrow and next week and next year are not yours to spend.
You can talk all you want about what you’ll build Tomorrow, next week, and next year.
You’d be an arrogant liar.

Tomorrow and next week and next year are not yours to plan.
You do not see your life as the vapor that it is  -
how your hours curl up and away from that hot, black coffee on the table,
dissipating faster than they appeared.

If you intend to write something, write it.
If you intend to build something, build it.

Each time you file that blank page away  -  to finish it Tomorrow  -
Tomorrow reaches deep into your wallet and takes exactly what it wants.

Tomorrow is a master thief, patiently waiting for you to lay down the pen.
To walk away from the page.

Today is not always sexy.
Today does not always feel comfortable.
Today has many demands, but …
Today is all you’ve been given. And you can build everything you want and need with it.
So what are you going to do today?
