STOP AND THINK – Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. (Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th century essayist)

We should learn from yesterday’s mistakes and then put them out of our mind. Tomorrow is a new day, and we are not condemned to repeat the errors of the past. Rather, we should apply what we’ve learned and move ahead with careful planning and determination to make the best of every situation that the year brings.

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me. (Philippians 3:13-14)
