Planting trees

One of my favourite Chinese proverbs that I constantly remind myself of is, "The best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago. The next best time is now."

This is simple sentence that encapsulates so well that everything that we experience today is borne out of the decisions that we have made and the actions that we have taken in the past. Hence, the best time to have done something is in the past.

However, in the same vein, the decisions we make and the actions we take today are what will shape the future that's ahead of us. Hence, the next best time to do something is right now. 

We're all taking actions in the current moment. 

Are they ones that will shape the future that we want for ourselves?
