It’s easy to get overwhelmed. Everything calls for our attention, and there are myriads of tasks that take you closer to your goals.
You only have so much time left here on earth.
How do you want to spend it?
Every goal you have may have an endless list of todos attached with it. But of all those tasks, some have more impact than others. There is one task that moves the needle the most.
Time spent planning your day is time well spent.
Identify what needs to be done. Write everything down. Go through that list. Ask yourself what is truly essential. Only do that.
You don’t need to hurry.
Just take one step at a time. And take your time to enjoy the journey.
