Pastist, Futurist or “Now-ist”?

I meet lots of people living in the past and wondering why the present isn’t what they want. There’s value in the past particularly the defining moments we have experienced, the lessons we learned from them, and how we are living the lessons now. We are who we are now because of who we’ve been. We can’t change the past.

I meet lots of people waiting for the future, predicting it will be better, yet doing little in the now that will create the desired future.

And then I meet people who have mastered the power of now as Eckhart Tolle has called it.

I love this TED talk by Joi Ito about being a Now-ist.

Receiving, Being, Feeling, Seeing, Doing, Knowing/Learning, Giving, in the Now.

There’s nothing quite like it.

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
