If I don't plan ahead I just seem to do whatever I "feel" like, which often doesn't equal ANYTHING on my goal list.
Attempting to plan for tomorrow, today, seems to help me out quite a bit. So when I don't have time to think- I don't HAVE to. Days don't always go according to "plan", but I stick a LOT closer to my goals than without a plan. At least I'll be thinking about my goals!
Sometimes without a plan, I waste so much time THINKING about what to do that I end up not having time to DO it.
Things I plan: 1- Clothes (seems silly, but if my workout wear isn't ready & waiting- I don't go!) 2- Meals AND snacks (this way I know what I have or need ahead of time) 3- Exercise (I check the weather and plan to the detail- even stretches!)

Get ready for tomorrow's plan, today. Get a plan for tomorrow's exercise, tomorrow's food, tomorrow's H20; get a strategy; get a daily routine and a weekly routine. Reboot as needed. You may not get all you planned to do done today, but you'll still get more done than if you hadn't planned at all.
Start today, right where you are, don't try to fix any catastrophes or disasters. Instead claw your way out of chaos by proactively organizing today, for tomorrow. Today think about, plan, get out, prep, & take care of, exercise clothes, regular clothes, food, water, planning sleep time, alarm, all ready & set for tomorrow. Then tomorrow, empty your kitchen sink & shine it, if it's already done then declutter for 15 mins. Set a timer & work til it goes off.
