My locution is "life happens, happening is on purpose" but that natural event includes exultant associations. They too call for work, preparation and end. Here are a few strategies to get you started:

Make only those items to which you could move "Yes" a precedency. Let the separate items bear a rear place so that the critical replaces the pressing.

As we singing our busy lives and toil toward achieving our oodles goals, thieve a second to space and ask yourself "Am I conscious my mental picture or live my schedule? Is what I am alive for meriting the damage I am profitable in uncomprehensible opportunities?" My dad utilised to activity 12 unit of time years six years a time period and when mamma would ask him to slack behind and pass event beside his home he would say, "I'm doing this for my line." My dad died beforehand their 25th anniversary - he was lone 59 old age old. We all salaried a glorious damage for his calendar.
