As we grow older it becomes less and less important how others judge us and more and more important how we judge ourselves.
As we grow older there is less and less time to have effect.
Today is the only day we can be sure our actions will add or subtract from how we judge ourselves.
Today is the only day we can be sure our actions will help or hinder.
What we plan to accomplish tomorrow does not count.
When we are no longer here, you will still know me but I can no longer do any more so that you will judge me differently.
When I am no longer here, I will still know you, and my judgments of you can no longer be changed no matter what actions you take.
