Most of us have two modes when we think about things:
1. the urgent, the right now, the emergency, the having to, needing to, wanting to, and the should. Pay the bill, pick up the kid, what to have for dinner, what am I forgetting?
2. the some day one day future. Retirement. Summer vacation. Getting married. When I have lost all this weight. When I’ll have my horse farm. When I have my retirement community that I built and I will be significant, and rich. When I’ll be a rock star.
I remember when it was like that for me. And, to be quite hones, it is still work to dislodge myself and think of the in-between.
Without working TOWARDS something, it is natural to fall into the same old, same old, or good enough is good enough. The rut.
