Today is one of those days. They often fall on Monday. Things feel overwhelming, tiring, and loathsome. And suddenly all the pieces of your life that don’t fit quite right begin to crowd in on your attention.
When this happens, ask yourself, what’s the one thing I can do?
Find just one thing you need to do today. Then do it.
Don’t trick yourself into thinking you will do more things. You must not ask yourself to do more than the one thing, nor expect that you will feel like it (even if you usually do).
Just pick one thing and do that.
