How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. (Annie Dillard, Pulitzer Prize winning author)

Many people think, plan, and strategize for where they want to be in ten years, five years, one year. But, as Dillard reminds us, we live life one day at a time. That’s not to discount planning for success. Perhaps she is urging us to think more about daily living in terms of character and behavior. After all, what we are today is more important than what we plan to do tomorrow.

Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plans will succeed. (Proverbs 16:3)
