Are you living in the present while dreaming for the future?
I had an interesting meeting with some friends the other day. We were talking about our dreams for the future. I was sharing about my recent Podcast on “Dreaming Your Future into Reality.” (If you haven’t had a chance to hear it, you can go to iTunes and listen to Episode 4.)
We began to talk about how we stay in the present, while planning for our future. It sounds simple enough, but with everything going on in our lives, sometimes it’s hard just to be present with our family, with our friends, even at our jobs.
How do we live in the moment? I always tell my coaching clients to, ”Bloom where you’re planted, while continuing to keep working toward the future. By doing this, you are able to enjoy the now, and keep moving to where you want to be.”
I’ve been working on this myself and over the years, I have discovered Four Disciplines, which have worked well. I have incorporated them into my life, and they keep me focused on the present, while I am moving toward the future.
