“What’s next?” – Martin Sheen fromThe West Wing

President Josiah Bartlett was often heard at the end of an episode to ask “What’s next?”  It would follow routine activities as well as the  resolution of a major crisis.

It always stuck with me because it’s all about  not living in the past, no matter how recent.

Nor is it about spending much time analyzing the future because it cannot be known.

As the current moment passes, the only thing that’s important is the next moment.  It’s a statement of action and of getting things done…

…that is, the right things.
