Life - A day at a time

One day Life - Living one day at a time!

My motivation is tomorrow, just one day at a time, right?   
Rafael  Nadal    

We all know death is certain and our time is limited here.
But we all plan our future. Strive hard to become rich, be professionally successful, we plan to have more money in future to enjoy life, want to go to world tour or to buy that yacht or super car.
It's absolutely fine to plan for our future, that's being optimistic and its good.

But it is equally important to live life Today. In present.

We should not forget to appreciate our present life in efforts of making for future one, which is uncertain.

It is important to balance the personal success along with professional one.

It is important to enjoy what we have achieved, what we have rather than waiting to achieve materialistic achievement.

Ultimately we want to live free and enjoy the journey of life, that's happiness.

One way to balance this is to live one day at a time -:

Live one day life, live today.

How do we do that, here we have listed  7 points below to practice one day at a time.

1. Believe: 

Believe in your self. Whatever you have achieved so far is from your abilities, dedication and work, so further things will come by the time. Don't wait thing to happen, build your confidence. 
Believe and act what you plan to be, don't just wait. It's only you who can help you and you have great potential to achieve what you have desired of. So relax and have faith in yourself.

Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe. 

~ Gail Devers 

2. Be natural:

Take the things as it comes. Be yourself, don't be hesitant of natural expressions. Let all your feelings come in, don't stop your emotions find out way to express it. It's OK to cry. It's ok to lose at something.
We can not always win and we have different set of emotions as a human so don't hide.
If you are sad today, you could happy tomorrow. Nothing is certain, don't take yesterday's emotion to today and today's to next day.

3. Don't think too much:

Do the best you can to your abilities in your professional front. Dedicate time to do all possible activities in a day.
If you keep thinking on long term results to be happen, you could develop negative thoughts and that will hamper your daily activities.

Don't worry, worrying is only going to take you down; find out hobbies or  interests that keep you mind occupied.

“Let our advance worrying become advance thinking and planning.”
 – Winston Churchill

4. Smile and Enjoy little victories:

Learn to enjoy short victories like, 
You started early and beat the traffic to the office.
You beat your computer in minesweeper. :)
Win a poker game with friends or jog that extra mile.
Celebrating small victories will sure help to build confidence for large wars.

Don't miss the opportunities to smile, it increases your life span. Share a joke with your friends, colleagues and have a smile.
It will relieve your stress for a while.
A pleasant smiley face is initiator of great conversation.
It is important to spend your day doing your favorite activities at least up to some extent even if you are occupied with your professional duties, you can always take time to friendly chat and some smiles. That would be the day you really lived.

5. Work smart and hard:

With your increasing experience in your profession, you have to learn to work smart along with the hard work.
You have same set of 8 hours at work as your competitors, seniors and juniors.
Learning to do maximum of 8 hours is smart work, so that you don't have to put additional time to complete the work. 

Work hard to strive for best, work on the task till you feel you have achieved best solution, best result in given task.

This will lead you to job satisfaction. Helps to reduce anxiety of results, if you are satisfied internally of your work.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. 

~ Steve Jobs

6. Plan Daily:

Planning and execution is important. Plan your day ahead.
Effective time management is open secret in any field. 
Study daily commute routes and pick shortest time to travel to your work and home.
Plan your breaks effectively to manage your work within time.
If you don't have to put extra time in work you can take that time for you personal happiness.
For taking guitar lessons or flying lessons.

Take time to spend with your family, nothing is more fruitful than having dinner together with your family.

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin

7. Health matters:

Nothing is more important than your personal health.

Your well balanced mind and physical health helps you to take care of your family and loved ones.
