The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. – Chinese Proverb
Meaning of this Quote
‘The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago’, which means that the best time to do something might have already passed… but that should not stop you from doing it today.
‘The second best time is now’, which means that certainly, it had been great if you had done it such a long time back. However, if you have already missed that opportunity, you should not keep nagging about it either! You should not be succumbed with regrets so much so that you focus on your today.
If you haven’t done it then, you can always do it today. It is never too late to do anything. If you haven’t done it then, you shouldn’t miss this opportunity at least now!
It is always better to do it today if you have already missed an opportunity to do it before. You cannot travel through time and get into the past. However, you can always focus on your today and try making your today the best day of your life.
Instead of crying over a time that has already gone out of your hands, you should at least focus on making your today as the best day. When you keep competing with yourself and try making your today better than yesterday, you will be able to reach your goal.
You should not become stagnant by any chance rather you should have faith in your ability and keep growing. Improve yourself on each and every day, and put yourself in a regular test so do better than what you did yesterday.
