LIVE IN "DAY-TIGHT COMPARTMENTS"

"The only possible way to prepare for the future is to do today's work superbly today"

Condensed from the book "How to Stop Worrying and Start Living"
Dale Carnegie
Author of "How to Win Friends and Influence People"

'IN THE sprin gof 1871 ayoung medical student at the Montreal '. General Hospital, later to become the most famous physician of his generation, picked up a book by Thomas Carlyle and read 2 i words that had a profound effect on his future: "Our main business is

The load of tomorrow, added to that of yesterday, carried today, makes the strongest falter. The only possible way you can prepare for the future is to concentrate on doing today's work superbly today. Remember, said Osler, The Lord's Prayer teaches us to ask only for today's bread. Today's bread is the only kind of bread you can possibly eat.
Many men have rejected the counsel of Jesus to "take no thought for the morrow" as a counsel of perfection or a bit of Oriental mysticism, not realizing that His words were translated more than 300 years ago, when the word thought frequently meant anxiety.
