The Case Against Next (part one)

Jon Acuff makes a compelling case about why "now" matters more than "next." "Now is where today’s laughs live," he writes.

We can often get caught up in what's next, especially if we're leading a group. The idea of leading implies motion, a quest forward that is always focused on the next goal, obstacle, or challenge.

And while an eye to the future is wise, we can't cast our view solely on the horizon at the expense of what's to be enjoyed right in front of us. Seeing only what's in the distance can cause us to stumble on the pothole beneath our feet.

It's possible to look at what's next without overlooking what's now.
