What could you do with an extra 21 hours per week? I can show you how to gain just that. By showing you how to do this, added to a handful of dream tending ticklers—prepare yourself—those dreams of yours are going to come true!
If you reduce the amount of television you watch in a day by only 3 hours (the average is 5 hours and 4 minutes), multiplied by the seven days in a week, you will have an extra 21 hours to participate in life, versus watching others live. And if you were to spend half of that three hour gain actively tending your dream, your own progress will amaze you.
Another way to gain productive time is to support your body and mind with restful sleep. Go to bed one hour earlier per night (it may take some time to retrain yourself to actually start resting sooner), and ultimately, your dream tending efforts will improve.
Take a Sabbath rest every week. It may seem like a time-waster, but in reality, this is a time-generator when it comes to having the strength and endurance to make your dreams come true, and to maintain them when they do.
A mental trick that will infuse you with energy is to make your bed every morning. This little change in habit will fill you with an inner sense of deep satisfaction. Once a human being feels good about accomplishing one thing, they are often motivated to tackle other projects.
If you fight the procrastination monster, take my challenge and do one thing every day that you’ve been putting off. It doesn’t have to be something of great magnitude, but a little progress is like a magic potion to the human spirit.

- Are you supporting your body, mind, and spirit in healthy ways, so you are equipped and strengthened to tend your dreams?

A few simple changes can produce powerful, life-altering results.
