Too much planning for the future reduces the joy we can feel in the present.

If you struggle to turn off your eating or exercise-planning brain, it often helps to acknowledge that you can’t fail. Every unplanned moment is an opportunity to learn. Those unplanned days are the best times to practice life’s non-trackable metrics.

Patience, satisfaction, grace, adaptability and resilience. We need all those skills to be and feel successful.

Your success for the next few days or weeks might look different to what you’re used to. And that’s what life’s all about.
