“Today is the only day. Yesterday is gone.”–John Wooden
Learning to live in the moment is a bit easier said than done. However, truth be told we don’t have yesterday and tomorrow is not known. Oh, sure we have to plan ahead of time.
Being present in the moment is in my mind is focused completely on the tasks before me. Not worrying about what happened yesterday but total attention to the task-at-hand. Each day should be lined out with specific tasks that produce a result. Busy work is just that busy work.
In order to make a real change in our lives, we must produce a result from our daily routine. If you organize the day so that you have actionable tasks that produce a measurable result. Amazing things will begin to happen. For example, I enjoy writing more in the morning than at any other time. So as a task I set aside specific times of the morning to write. Not stopping until I am finished.
Moving onto the next task only when completing the current. If possible don’t leave off one job before you finish the current. Situations change but stay on task as much as possible. It takes discipline yourself. That change comes with good practice.
What happens to most of us is we get caught up in things that take away from what you can do right now. Worried about what is coming or worried about what has happened. If we’re going to fix anything the work has to come first. Sitting and worrying gets nothing done.
Don’t perpetuate problems solve them. Solving them is being present in the moment focused on what can be done NOT what has been done!

“Tomorrow is only found in the calendar of fools.”–Og Mandino
Being present in the moment! Are you present in the moment or looking forward? How much could you get done today if you did not worry about tomorrow?
I included it’s easier said than done to not worry about tomorrow. Especially when our lives are broken up into months, monthly payments and so on. How we get productivity vs. activity is to focus our efforts on today. There is no tomorrow if you do nothing today!
Organize your day if necassary hour to hour. You will be surprised if you focus solely on productivity how much you can get done.
If we focus on the day tomorrow will have brighter dawn to wake up to.
Have a blessed day!

“Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.”–Gordon B. Hinckley
The difference in winning and losing is work. What we mean by action is the daily effort put into that which you seek. Whether it is a success in business, success in marriage, success in raising children or just being your best self. No matter the endeavor it all takes work!
Deciding to do anything to produce a result requires activity that produces productivity. Never confuse the two. Activity and productivity must be in concert with each other to have any success.
Organize each day with tasks that you must complete. Do not move past a function until you finish it. The worst thing is to multi-task during a job. Laser focus on achieving a task, then move on. Giving your full attention to the task at hand will create amazing results.
Use a task management system to lay out your day’s work. Finish! That is the key to productivity is to finish the task.
If you don’t want the weeds to grow in your life. Do the work at hand, have faith that what you endeavor to do is coming to pass.
Questions or comments:
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”–Walt Disney
When you begin the journey of changing your life. Many talk a good game, but few start the actual mission. Get off your butt today and let’s get moving.
Baby steps to begin will help you gain momentum. Always have forward momentum. You will have struggles, own it! Just get moving.
Fear, doubt, all that will dissipate if you merely get moving. Start taking steps. Organize yourself, don’t confuse activity with productivity.
Use a calendar, task management tools to organize yourself. Track hour-to-hour your path. Leave time every day at least one FULL hour for your own growth. Do something that brings new knowledge.
Begin now, stop overthinking GO!!!

“Good, better, best. Never let it rest. ‘Til your good is better, and your better is best.”–St Jerome
Say that five times really fast! Ha Ha!
When I found this quote, it really hit me. In our journies, we strive to be our best. Those with passion seem to never rest in the pursuit.
What we learn along the way is forward momentum keeps our vision in sight of our goal. Whether you take a baby step today and a giant step tomorrow, it doesn’t really matter as long as the motion is forward.
Learning to organize your day into bite-size chunks will help. Get a calendar that you like to work with. Organize activities that you can begin and finish within an allotted period. This keeps you from getting to scattered. Activity vs. Productivity. We want production!
Map out a day from hour-to-hour. Don’t wing this get organized. If you do, success is coming. Being busy is just being busy. Have clear and actionable tasks, complete the work before moving on. This is the difference between winning and status quo.
Start today, now if possible. Procrastination is what other people do!
