Peace comes with taking things one at a time.
Toss out all the plans, all the multi-tasking, and bask in the simple oneness of being here in the now.
Here you are. Now. You’re not where you were three years ago or will be two months from now. You’re just here now.
If you just did one thing well today, you had a successful day.
I think to-do lists are fine time management tools. They work perfectly well if we create them in a way that there are just a few really important items on top and nothing more. That way when you have accomplished those important tasks you are freed up to enjoy your life. You may create a list for the next day but then stop. Your work is done. Do not worry about anything you did not get to today. Don’t even try to multi-task. I think multi-tasking is one of the biggest anxiety producers of this generation. Just don’t do it.
Time management for peace in a nutshell:
1. The night before or first thing in the morning, decide on the top three most important things you need to do for the day.
2. Write them down.
3. Do them. You may cross them off your list as you accomplish them.
4. Your work is done.
All you have is today. Do not stress about tomorrow, or the next day.

Life is not about:
Once again, Thanks Mew!
