Potential exists in this moment. To fulfill potential, do one’s best now.
One moment we might lower the knife we hold to our wrist, and trade it for a fork and a jar of hot fudge sauce. Later, we put those away and take a walk.
Next we shower, go to work, and smile at others. During our break we consider a few ways to save money. After that we think of how to spend the money, then a better way to spend it.
On our way home we might ask, what would I really like?
Before bed, we might take a step toward that.
