People find their greatest enjoyment when they're fully absorbed in a mindful challenge, known as "flow".

How to get into flow:

  • Find work that you're passionate about.
  • Clear away distractions and focus entirely on the task.

Qui-Gon to Anakin
Always remember, your focus determines your reality.
  • If you wake up focused on what a wonderful gift your life is, you'll have a great day.
  • If we keep our attention focused on one job at a time, we'll enjoy it and find it very productive.
  • If we focus on being healthy and fit, we will become healthy and fit through exercise and good eating.
Buddha
All that we are is the result of what we have thought.”

The most important determinant of whether you'll achieve a goal or stay with a new habit is not self-discipline, nor rewards, nor willpower, nor motivation. It is focus.

Having multiple goals spreads out your focus and makes it less likely that you'll complete any of them. Maintain your attention on one goal at a time.

Focus on the Positive

Be aware of your negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts. For example, instead of quitting your exercise routine, think about how great you feel. 

Focus on the good parts of your life. Be thankful for what you have.
