Do you see yourself residing in the past, the present or the future? Why? Do you find yourself trying to relive the past? Do you find yourself focused on future expectations? Are you primarily engaged with what is happening currently?
Is your focus a conscious choice? Could it be? Ideally, where would you like your mind to be focused? What is your favorite time period; past, present or future? Why?
Touching the present moment, we realize that the present is made of the past and is creating the future” –Thich Nhat Hahn
Are your goals set based on your present situation, from when we return to “normal”, from where you were before this or from another point of reference? Are your action steps taken to “fix” past events; to insure future success or to maximize your life in the present moment? Can you take action effectively in all three?
Over what time period do you have the most control? Have you enjoyed success in changing the past? Can you accurately predict the future?
