“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!
