For so many of us to get things done we need to focus on one day at a time instead of worrying about what is going to happen in the future.
I was one of those individuals that was always worrying about what could happen in the future but then I decided that I didn't have any control over it so why was I worrying about it. Of course there are still times I feel a little stressed when I know that I have a lot on my plate but at least it isn't as bad as it was.
Taking one day at a time means that I don't worry about how I am going to accomplish everything that is on my plate. Instead what I focus on is getting a few things done from start to finish and that makes me feel so much better than bouncing around through a lot of different things. Yes, the bouncing just meant that nothing really got finished and of course that meant I stressed and worried about everything even more.
The taking one day at a time means now I realize that I can only do so much and that is my limited. I don't worry about what lays ahead but what I am working on now. Of course, my to-do-list is still something that I look at and review all the time but it isn't something that adds stress to my life like it was. My to-do-list just gives me the guidance of what I need to be working on and then I pick a couple of things and work on them until they are complete.
Taking one day at a time has given me the chance to enjoy the time when I walk away from all the work. I try most evenings to send some time doing something that I enjoy and not worrying about what I didn't get done that day. My to-do-list will always be there and now I get to enjoy things a little bit more.
