“The present is so rich because so much is happening in it. Most people can’t see, feel, or experience it, so they can’t benefit from it. If, on the other hand, you actually can see, feel, or experience it, that skill is leverageable.

“By this I mean that you can do more with the present than you can with the past or the future. The present is like yeast, or like a pulley or a fulcrum – anyone who is aware of, and sensitized to, all that is occurring in the present will find that they can do a lot with it.”

Thomas Leonard, The Portable Coach
