You must live life one day at a time. You can’t travel in time. You’re stuck in the present with the rest of us.
Yet how often do you choose to time travel in your own mind? You focus on that rude thing someone said. You dwell on that big mistake or failure. You dream about how great life will be when…
Some will tell you that’s perfectly ok. That it’s part of being a human being. While it may be part of being human, it most certainly isn’t ok. And it isn’t helping you win at life.
Winning takes focus, specifically on the present. And you can’t focus on where you are when your mind is somewhere else.
Do you want better, deeper, and stronger relationships? Stop robbing those around you of your attention. You can’t build and strengthen relationships when you’re not present.
Do you want health, vitality, and energy? Stop dreaming and get started. Do something now. Get the ball rolling today. Don’t wait on “someday.” It never comes. Take step one today. Act. Get off the couch. Put down the donuts. Pick up something heavy. Get moving.
Do you want a successful business? Go write all those dreams and goals down on a piece of paper, then shove that thing in a drawer. It’s time to work. Write a business plan. Make some phone calls. Send an email. Schedule a meeting. Focus on doing one thing today that will move the ball forward.
You can’t do things any other way. Just sitting there thinking about it won’t lead to done. It’ll hold you back. You’ll trick yourself into believing that you’re actually working on things rather than what you’re really doing, procrastinating.
If you must procrastinate, procrastinate on procrastinating. That you can do tomorrow. Decide to work today instead. Do one important thing. That’s all. One thing done with energy and purpose today.
