E445: Practice Focusing On Today

Today you are exactly where you are supposed to be. The future is up to you.


  1. The past is just a memory
    1. It’s gone and nothing we do today will change it
    2. Stop dwelling on the past – it will not repeat unless you let it
    3. We must use the past for lessons and move on
  2. The future is just electrical charges in our brains
    1. Have a bill due next week and not sure how you are going to pay it? Worry will not change that, only action will
    2. Don’t allow yourself to get caught up in the “what-ifs” or “I will change whens” – practice taking action
    3. The future is shaped by the actions you take today
  3. Learn to focus on today – it’s the only thing that is real
    1. We can’t change the past but we can re-negotiate the future
    2. It starts with taking action today
    3. It can be hard to stop the dwelling so try some of these things to help
      1. Write down lessons learned from the past – both good and bad
      2. Take a walk
      3. Listen to some music
      4. Let the future be a catalyst for taking action

    1. To be successful, you need to be open for what might come your way
    2. Don’t get too caught up in tunnel vision
    3. The world is conspiring for your greater good
  2. Learn and grow every day

      2. Or take on the day with vigor and a positive mindset
  3. Our goal – get the most out of the day
    1. Doesn’t matter what you have planned, get the most out of the day

    3. Develop your morning statements – for example, here are mine
