The double-fudge-loaded cheesecake derails your healthy eating habits.
Disturbed sleep derails your writing habit.
Surprises in your schedule derail family time.
Unexpected behavior from others derails your best intentions to be the best possible version of yourself.

Learn from yesterday.
Plan for tomorrow.
Live in today.
