What Have You Done Lately?

Sometimes Karate instructors will tell me about their accomplishments 40 or 50 years ago. That is great, but I wonder, "What have you done lately?"

As soon as I do something, I forget about it. It is over. It is time to do the next thing. What I have done is done. What I am doing is what counts.

I do not want someone to ask me, "Didn't you use to be that Karate instructor?"

I told my son once that an instructor had mentioned his accomplishment over 40 years ago. My son said, "He should get over it."

We should not let anything hold us back, even our accomplishments. We should "get over it" and "get on."
