Planning vs. Worrying about the future

There is a fine line between the two.

Planning is good and advised:

- Envision future success

- Set goals

- Create a strategy

- Write down to do's

Worrying is unproductive and ill-advised:

- What if this or that happens...

- I hope I don't...

- I hope my friend, coach, or boss doesn't...

You will know which one it is by the emotion you experience.

With planning, you may:

1. Feel a sense of peace afterwards (you can still feel a little stressed when you plan and see all that will go into it- but that's the good kind of stress).

2. Feel focused and ready to go.

3. Feel excited and prepared.

With worrying, you likely will:

1. Feel anxious

2. Feel hesitant

3. Feel dread

Today, be proactive and plan. Envision the future you want, set a big goal or two, set some micro goals, and write down your to-do's.

But do not worrying about tomorrow. Each day has enough troubles of it's own ;-)
