Today Is The Tomorrow You Had Been Talking About Yesterday!


“Concentrate all your thoughts upon the work at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought to a focus.”

–Alexander Graham Bell

I SEE SOME VERY IMPORTANT points highlighted in this quote, namely

  1. Concentration
  2. Thoughts
  3. Process of Completing a Given Task
  4. Present Rather than the Past or the Future
  5. Immense Power of the Sun and its Limited Capacity in a Given Situation
  6. Focus
  7. End Result

All those unaware of the immensely valuable contributions of Alexander Graham Bell to modern living, please STOP reading any further. All others may make an effort to unearth the deep-rooted message from the inventor of the microphone and the eventual “electrical speech machine”, the name he gave to his invention of the telephone.

Power of Concentration is one of the basic building blocks that teachers help implant into every child at the earliest possible stage. Their continued attention, combined with attentive guidance, helps us remove distractions from our minds and generate positive thoughts. The little assignments we used to be given at   the elementary level made us all proud upon completion, no matter how mundane they might seem today.

We can also effectively relate to the advice that we have all received through our life, at one time or another, to live in the present rather than the past or the future. It is this advice that teaches us to keep our feet firmly on the ground. Abiding by this principle only goes to help us take consolidated steps where no issue is left unattended to hound us after in a million different ways.

Steps 5 and 6 above warn us against imaginative power of our assumed success which is more of a transitory nature than permanent. The analogy of sun’s rays and their failure to ignite without absolute focus is a mute testament to the unexpectedly tough situations where we sometimes find ourselves. It is only when we delve deeper into the problem and focus on the contributory factors that we are able to come up with plausible solutions. Solution appears when we put our knowledge and experiences together.

Step 7 brings us to a happy ending with the possibility of achieving the desired result.

The wisdom of management studies conducted over more than a century, the treatises carefully written by experts, ‘gurus’ and researchers alike can all be summed up in this one immensely valuable quote from an individual who left us to fend for ourselves almost a hundred years ago (since 2nd of August 1922).

We need not ruin our perfect present by gloating over the past or worrying about the future, why?

Because Today is the Tomorrow We had been talking about Yesterday!!!


Bharat Mathur
Bharat Mathur
WHERE goal setting and systematically achieving each one of them has been the ‘Mantra’, where earning trust by delivering value has been an uncompromising principle and where deeply impactful experiences have made an indelible impression to look directly into the eyes of toughest problems and tackling them head-on has been a major cementing glue in the foundation, Bharat Mathur fits the bill, hands down! Creating value for others, out of the challenges his career in the “C” Suite kept throwing at him left, right and center, Bharat now finds solace in being a ‘Guide by Your Side’ rather than a ‘Sage on the Stage with An Eye on What You Buy’! Past 4 decades of Bharat’s life have been no less eventful than that of anyone else in similar circumstances. However, the way he lived from one challenge to another and stayed focused on his goal is clearly visible as much in his Coaching as in his #1 Best Seller Book: “you Are YOU-nique: Realize Your True Worth”! His next book project tackles ‘Internet of things’ (IoT) from the viewpoint of a layman and helps understand this fast-approaching revolution in simple, easy-to-understand language with live examples: “SMART PHONE + I o T = INCOMPARABLE OPPORTUNITIES” Nurturing a number of successful businesses, mentoring a lot more towards astronomical growth and helping them identify and eradicate trouble spots, Bharat has rightfully earned the nickname: ‘Achiever’ Send him Bouquets or Brickbats, Bharat loves it all!

  1. Interesting writing. I wrote one time.
    It is to be as it shall be,
    It shall be what it will be,
    Yet it’s always said to never end.

    And what I was speaking of was the past, present and future in relation to time because time like God is endless having no true beginning or end because God is time and He is omnipotent or without time. He is here, has always been here and will always be here. Time is like the wind which can be felt but is not known where it came from or where it’s going because like time it has no boundaries. Therefor today, tomorrow and yesterday in the relation to time has no boundaries and are the same. On the other hand time is purely a man made concept used to measure cycles and create yesterdays which are today and will be tomorrow.

    • So true, Chirs! Thanks for the value addition!

      I truly appreciate your continued engagement with deep thoughts that make me think further!

      Warm Regards with Best Wishes!
