Robert Caro, the Pulitzer prize winning author of the Power Broker and the Years of Lyndon Johnson, has a post-it note on his desk with the following sentence:

The only thing that matters is what’s on this page.

It doesn’t matter what you’ve written in the past, it doesn’t matter what you’ll write in the future. All that matters is what you’ve written now.
