Getting to where you want to be isn't going to happen doing nothing.
Everything is important; planning, diarising, scheduling, organizing etc.. It's all a vital part in the end goal, but the most important is the small-daunting-efforts.
I must admit I've configured my being into impatience, thus leading to the hatred of small tasks - waking up a tad earlier - eating regularly - working out in a more concise way - monitoring the task at hand; I'm slowly-learning to appreciate these little things now (Come now, we all know slow cook is the only way to cook!) because the small efforts now will step you closer to your goals, overnight success happens in a few years of small efforts. I've had to learn this the hard way, 2015 was great and all but I lacked precise achievements, I sort of achieved my goals. The only thing that keeps me going is seeing my achievements, when they aren't as clear as I had dreamt it lowers the esteem for such tasks; like a boot to a cockroach - I'm crushed! Done! Zero credits!
But life must go on with or without you, I've learnt doors will keep shutting closed the closer you get, so you could either sit back and go with what is presented to you good or bad, or you could learn to appreciate the menial tasks that come to form the bigger picture. You'll always be where you allow yourself to be, that situation you have going on, learn from it remember how it makes you feel then move.
