The Single Word that is Stealing Your Future

You can talk all you want about what you’ll write Tomorrow, next week, and next year. It matters very little. Tomorrow and next week and next year are not yours to spend. You can talk all you want about what you’ll build Tomorrow, next week, and next year. You’d be an arrogant...
