Living with your mind centered on the future causes you to miss out on the here and now and our lives are made out of seconds of now, not of seconds of the future. By living in the future you don’t really live at all.

Naturally, it’d be nice to live so I’m trying to love the journey – the present. Here are a few ways to accomplish that:

Pure centering is bliss. When your thoughts, behaviors and emotions are all directed toward an individual function you're centering and you're in the present. You ought to get lost in your work. Set a deadline for yourself to complete a task and see your level of centering skyrocket.

Two of my acquaintances and I meet up every now and again to discuss business, thoughts, and just random stuff really. It’s reasonably flexible and unprofessional, however we still label it as a organize session.

Although the very construct of a organize session is centered on acquiring results in the future I feel there’s likewise a sense of living in the here and now, as we all simply sit around a table or outdoors on the grass and talk. There’s no fancy technology, really little note taking and it’s simply pure discussion. And possibly most especially: its fun.

Time flies. Find like-minded people and put your heads together.

Being in a hurry doesn’t give you an opportunity to appreciate the present. I realize there are assorted apparent urgencies you might feel in your life. I find taking things slower and merely being patient more rewarding.

Slow down the speed of life.

When you introduce balance into your life you get mindful of what you’re doing, giving you an opportunity to acknowledge seconds for what they are: precious gifts of chronology. Don’t let anything devour your life.

Realize what you want the future to hold and set a plan to oblige that. This gives you perhaps the most potent tool in accomplishment: certainty.
