A client of mine was musing about an upcoming month with no events in it and how that lack of events will make compliance (regular workouts and diet adherence) easy. I cautioned her against thinking that way, because hitching your hopes to a challenge-less period of time is wishful thinking at best and a death wish at worst.
Today is the day. There's never going to be more time than you have right now; and what a gift it is.
I once heard a Navy SEAL say the number one secret to high performance is beginning the day with gratitude, being thankful for every good thing in ones life.
I include the challenges in my thanks. I include the urgency. I'm never going to have more time to do the things in life I want to do than I have today, right now.
I'm never going to have more time to spend with my kids than I have right now. I'm never going to have more time to reach for a goal.
Some people didn't get today. Some won't see its end. Not one of us is promised tomorrow. Each day passes; and there's 24 fewer hours in your life to git 'er dun. This is it. But it's more than enough, if you want it to be.
