One Day

Monday, June 20th, 2011

Recently, I have spoken to many people lately who have felt a ton of anxiety in their daily lives.

The reasons are all over the place – some personal and some professional. If I were to tell you some of their stories you would probably comment that some people are big babies while others have really difficult circumstances.

The interesting thing about anxiety is that it is always a result of our perspective. A job loss may be devastating to one person (someone in their first career with a ton of debt) and a blessing to another (someone who has always wanted to start their own company).

It all depends on how you view the circumstances.

Because perspective is so important, during stressful times, I often advise my clients, my friends and myself that you should change your perspective to focus exclusively on the day.

That’s it. Don’t worry about tomorrow, next week or next year. Just execute what’s in front of you.

You’d be amazed at how much your perspective (and your anxiety) changes when you’re only concerned with the next 24 hours.
