Of course, if you’ve utterly failed for the first two hours of your day, or failed even to start, this is no excuse for you not to try to achieve better for the rest of the day. In fact, this presents even more pressure to jump back on the horse and make sure each minute results in a win. Recognize this added pressure and step up to the plate. Use your bad start as an aid to your efficacy. Use it as an excuse for the rest of the day to turn away distractions and stay intensely focused on making up time you’ve lost by winning every minute.
