Two minutes, three breaths at each step
As you begin to speak to yourself in a language that focuses on results rather than blame, on choice rather than have to, on what is rather than what you think should be, you will find that your body and mind cooperate by providing a level of positive energy, without stress or anxiety, free from unnecessary struggles of the past and negative comparisons with the future.

"Putting off living" is the most tragic form of procrastination we can engage in. Not only does it keep us from completing the really important tasks in life, it lessens our respect for ourselves.

All large tasks are completed in a series of starts: keep on starting, and finishing will take care of itself.

Before deciding to go to a recreational activity or social commitment, take time out for just thirty minutes of quality work.
