FOCUS ON THE PRESENT AND THE FUTURE WILL TAKE CARE OF ITSELF

Today I had to remind myself of this.


I woke up at 5:30AM this morning to ride out to Sam Houston National Forest for a video for my YouTube channel JfoMoto which will be live this Friday 3PM CST



I got there made sure everything was set with the camera, mic, weather all that good stuff and I was ready to ride.


I jumped on the road and started riding all I could focus on was making sure my camera angles were good, I wasn't making any noise that the mic would pick up (this is a pure motorcycle sound video)


I got through the forest and realized I had not taken any of it in myself. Here I am in one of the most beautiful places you can ride and I am so focused on what the future video is going to look like, how many views it might get etc. that I forget to enjoy it.


I jumped off the road turned off the camera, cranked up the music in my helmet turned around, and rode back through soaking it all in. Nothing else at that moment mattered.


I don't know about you but I am constantly getting distracted by thoughts of the future and the past. I think this is okay as long as you don't let yourself live there. Live now. I am 34 and in the prime of my life. I have a beautiful wife, a beautiful home, and 3 crazy animals I love to death. So what else am I chasing?


How sad it is not to enjoy the things that are right in front of you.


I hope this helps remind you to live in the present as it did for me.

Being on the other end of life than you... you know the time when you are SUPPOSED to be thinking about slowing down, taking it easy, chillin'... NONE of that in sight. It's all a result of choices I made starting around your age. Learn this lesson well... don't worry about the past or future. There is nothing you can do about the past, it happened, you need to accept it, learn from it if you can, ignore it if you have to.


The best thing you can do about the future is give it some brief visioning time and then live and work in the PRESENT to get the future you want. You will NEVER get the future you want unles…

And NEVER is this more true when the not living in the present leads to not having a memory and then someone dies ending the possibility of EVER living a new memory. Take it from me, that is NOT something you want to have happen in your life. ENJOY and be PRESENT in the moments of your life because you never know when your moments (or moments with someone else) will no longer be a possibility.
