There is no better time than the present because that is the only time you are present. The past is a memory only you hold in your head. Which is different from the memory that someone else holds in their head. The future is just a vision that may or may not come to fruition. The only thing that is real is the present so make sure you are present in the present and not constantly focused in the past or future. The present is the only thing you can control.
You can control your thoughts and actions in the present moment. By structure and planning you can make the future more predictable. You can become a future teller because you are in control. There is no way to plan for everything but if you plan for nothing then that is what you will get. There is no wrong or right answer but only you know what you want.
Once you are present in the present then your future and past will be better as well. Use your imagination for a compelling future.
See yourself accomplishing your dreams!
