“Carpe Diem - Seize the day !”

Author: neptune | 13th-Sep-2022 | Views: 470

There was once an old parrot in a Pennsylvania hunting club. The old parrot lived in a cage hanging by the entrance. Every time someone entered, the old parrot would say, "One at a time, gentleman, one at a time." Those were the only words he knew. If you take things one at a time, you can focus. You can put in all your effort in that particular task.

What are the things you worry about right now?

Whatever they are, your worries are keeping you from living. They are keeping you from being with your loved ones. They are keeping you from happiness and success. Do you want to spend your life worrying? Would you rather spend your life living? You need to find effective ways to get rid of your worries. Do you often worry about the past? Do you often worry about the future? Sometimes, people worry so much that they forget about the present. Do you think you are getting the most out of life?

Carpe Diem - Seize the Day!

The old Roman saying, "Carpe Diem" means "Seize the day." Wherever you are in your life right now, enjoy it. Live in it. Appreciate everything. Do not worry about the past or the future. Focus on what you must do in the present.

You will see that you get more out of life by taking it one day at a time. You can enjoy the moment, and you can focus on your task.

One spring day, there was a young medical student worrying about his future. Will he pass his final exams? Where would he go after school? How would he begin his career? The young medical student was reading a book when he found 21 words that inspired him. That young man was Sir William Osier.

The 21 words that Sir William read were, "Our main business is not to see what lies dimly at a distance, but to do what lies clearly at hand." 

It means focusing on the task that we have right now instead of worrying about the future. Allow yourself to think about what you have to do at that very moment. Do not wander off to the past or the future.

Sir William did not intend for people to stop preparing for the future. However, he did want them to turn all energy on today's tasks. Do your best. Give it all you've got. By doing so, you will surely have a good future.

When we were children, we dreamt about the time when we would grow up. When we are older, we dream of getting married. When we are married, we dream about retirement. When that day comes, we will realize how much we have lost. "Life, we learn too late, is in the living, in the tissue of every day and hour."


The old parrot lived in a cage hanging by the entrance. Every time someone entered, the old parrot would say, "One at a time, gentleman, one at a time." Remember to disregard the past. Focus on the present. Focus on what is in front of you. What are your tasks today? Work hard. If you give your best effort, the future will "take care of itself." 

Carpe Diem, Seize the Day!
