Oh Twitter. Since I have actively started following people I don’t ever have to come up with an original thought. 🙂
And that is good for a Monday morning! Today, I will let the great author Max Lucado speak to you as I steal a thought from him.
You last the long race by running the short ones. Never tackle more than the challenge ahead. #GreatDay

That’s very similar advice that I use a lot when running hard, or racing. As a runner, you don’t focus on the entire distance, you break it down – especially when it gets hard. For instance, when I run a hard work out, I may break it down to just things on the road – like – just to the mailbox, and then to the next mailbox, and then to the mark on the road. Short, attainable, focused goals. And before you know it you have maintained the effort for the entire distance! YEAH!
So today, tackle the challenge right in front of you – today, or maybe just the next 5 seconds!
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. Matthew 6:34 New International Version (NIV)
