This weekend I revisited the amazing and nearly perfect Back to the Future movie trilogy. At the end of the final chapter, after many wild trips through several timelines, Doc Brown concludes it all by saying, Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one.
That’s not just some movie magic that is only true in the fantastic screenplay of Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis. We have that power in “real life.” We are the ones who get to choose and make whatever future it is that we want for ourselves. The story of how our lives play out has not been written yet. We get to be the author of our own destiny.
And no matter what has happened so far up until now, it’s never too late to course correct and make a different choice for what will happen next.
The choice is all ours. So like Doc Brown says, let’s make it a good one.
