For me, the definition of a successful day is simple. It means that I have sustained mental energy to tackle both good and evil. It also means that I keep regret and anxiety to a minimum. I neither dwell on the past, which I can’t change, nor focus on the future that will end up nothing like I can possibly predict. Recently, I have noticed a success pattern. Those days start out the same way: Consciously.
