THIS IS IT! Make the Most of Every Moment!

Listen to Big Blend Radio’s special 8 Keys of Excellence show focusing on the 4th Key: THIS IS IT – Make The Most of Every Moment! Featured Guests include: Bobbi DePorter – Co-Founder of SuperCamp & President of Quantum Learning Network; Ralph Masengill Jr. – author of “Conquer Change and Win”; Life Coach Steve Piacente; Jim Ostdick – author of ‘Palomino Nation: My 2016 Crazyass Walk Across America’; Hollywood Historian Steve Schneickert!


This Is It! is about focusing on NOW instead of later, or next week, or next month, or next year, or yesterday, etc., and making the most of it. A positive This Is It! attitude can make everything we do and every day productive, fulfilling, and fun!

Focus your attention on the present moment. Keep a positive attitude.


Life is full of distractions and opportunities to do something else, something other than what we’re doing now. Many of us spend a lot of time thinking about those other things. Instead of making what we’re doing now “it” our focus is often elsewhere—on things we wanted to do, could have done, should have done, or want to do “sometime.” Whenever our thoughts are occupied with something other than what we’re doing, we miss what’s going on around us in the moment … while we’re waiting for the next moment to arrive the present moment slips away.


When we live in the NOW we have power! With a This Is It! attitude we make the present “it” and find joyful moments that we might otherwise have missed!

Take a Virtual Walk Through the Excellence Hall of Fame

Take a virtual walk down the Excellence Hall of Fame, to reflect upon some of the wise words written and spoken by eight leaders and spokespeople, who exemplify the “THIS IS IT” Key of Excellence!

HENRY DAVID THOREAU – Writer, Naturalist & Philosopher
“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”

ALBERT EINSTEIN – Theoretical Physicist
“Life is a preparation for the future; and the best preparation for the future is to live as if there were none.”

“Always hold fast to the present. Every situation, indeed every moment, is of infinite value, for it is the representative of a whole eternity.”

“Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.”

WALT WHITMAN – Poet & Essayist

“Happiness, not in another place but this place…not for another hour, but this hour.”


HORACE MANN – Educational Reformer
“Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered for they are gone forever.”

MARIE CURIE – Physicist & Chemist
“The older one gets, the more one feels that the present moment must be enjoyed, comparable to a state of grace.”

THEODORE ROOSEVELT – 26th President of the United States
“Get action. Seize the moment. Man was never intended to become an oyster.”
