Main goal "I want to feel the life and be present in every moment, so that no moment would be boring and there would be time for the really important things" Mostly, when I do something, I worry over things I haven't done, or did wrong, or should do. And it made me angry&irritated, not be really with my family or enjoy things, ruining the moment I was in. And because of just screwing around doing all the other things than what should be doing (schoolwork & time with family) I don't get anything done. What a waste. - Whatever I am doing, I will give it my full attention. So no distractions, multitasking, worry of past or the future. I am hoping that feeling present fully will reveal the person that I am under all the useless mind-clutter. (Inspired by the NF article "How to become a productivity ninja" ) - Every day I will have a moment I do absolutely nothing. Just close my eyes, breathing slowly and deep from my diaphragm, letting my thoughts go. Also known as meditation. (Stumbled upon this in Leo Babauta's blog Zenhabits, "How to meditate daily" http://zenhabits.net/meditate/ ) Life goal: "I am not person who disrespects others by being late." I wrote to a teacher an email where I once again had to explain why an assignment was late. And I had no acceptable reason or excuse for it. All I could say was "Sorry, I can't say anything else than I will do my best to correct my ways". It felt bad, because I felt I was making her life a bit harder, and because I have a long time thought that returning agreed things late and not being in time at class shows -and is- disrespect for the teacher, classmates and anyone else. Teachers respect me by doing the work they do, and they are good people, so it's only fair to respect them back. To make this happen I will aim to be early in every set meeting and deadline. I will be 10-15 minutes early in class and other daily times, and more than one day early in any major deadlines. In class this time I have to wait I will use however I feel like at the moment. Meditation, thinking, going through notes... A 15 min block of completely free time is the carrot I need. (These two tips were lifted from Art of Manliness article about punctuality http://www.artofmanliness.com/2012/07/18/a-man-is-punctual-the-reasons-youre-late-and-how-to-always-be-on-time/ ) My motivation is this quote, although I do not know who said it: "You can say sorry a million times, Say 'I love you' as much as you want, say whatever you want, whenever you want. But if you're not going to prove that the things you say are true, then don't say anything at all. Because if you can't show it, your words... don't mean a thing."
