While we are working towards a future goal there is often a glitch. The problem is that often we spend so much time looking into the future that we forget to concentrate on today. It's the elusive "I'll be happy when ."
Live for today and not for the future. Exercising your action plan TODAY is what is going to get you to where you want to be. Live moment to moment. If this is the hour you are suppose to exercise or help your kids with their homework; then let your entire body and mind be focused on THAT. Don't let your mind wander to the bills or housework or even what you are suppose to do next.
Live with a timer if necessary. Designate X amount of time to accomplish a task and put 100% of effort into that task. When the timer goes off it's time to switch your focus.
Bonus idea: Don't get overwhelmed with any task. Spend 15 minutes of non-stop action at a fast-paced speed to finish those dishes or that pile of laundry or any other task that may seem daunting. Even 15 minutes a day cleaning the bathroom leaves you with a sparkling bathroom.
