Never thinking about tomorrow

Never thinking about tomorrow

When you think about how you are going to go through tomorrow, you will better equip yourself with what’s coming. 

When you envision or think about the coming days, you will feel more motivated because you are envisioning yourself creating the future you want and moving one step closer toward your dreams.

Not planning ahead

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

A lot of people wake up late on the weekend. They spend most of their time thinking about what to do, what to eat and where to go. You don’t have to plan every minute or every hour for your weekend. 

You can plan for 3 to 5 activities that you want to do during your weekend.

Starting the day late

Great people share one thing in common: they all wake up early to do their most important task and they exercise before they get to the office. If you start your day late, you will feel rushed throughout the whole day.

Getting distracted

Getting distracted

We get distracted when some other things seem more “interesting” to us. As long as you focus on your targets and always keep your goals in your mind, it will shield you from distractions.

No aims, targets and goals

Most people never really have a goal or target. That is why most of them go through life without passion and motivation. 

It is when you are absolutely clear about what you want to accomplish in your life that you will be able to come up with the right things to do and manage your time properly.

Not having a to-do list

Having a to-do list is always much better than not having one. The list helps you understand what you need to get done. 

A to-do list prepares us for what is coming and it reminds us of what we need to do.

No rest and all work

No rest and all work

You need to find a balance between resting and working. Some people can work till late at night and still feel motivated to do more, while some people can’t take it after 6 p.m.
Success is a journey and not a destination. You need to rest in order to get more done.

Not moving forward

Sometimes you will feel that you are too free or you wasted too much time on unnecessary activities and you are not moving forward at all. 

This is the time when you need to think about your goals and what you need to get done. This is why you need a to-do list too. You want to turn getting things done into a habit so that you will know how much work you can take each day.

Being a perfectionist

Always adopt the mindset of "ready, fire and aim" instead of "ready, aim and fire" approach. Always remember that no one is perfect in this world. We learn the most from our mistakes, not from our successes.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
