If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

Not really sure how to answer that because, while I was losing the weight, some of my short-term goals DID involve planning what I would do "next week." That's because it was based on what I was doing "THIS" week. For instance, when I first started, I could barely ride my exercise bike for 5 minutes. So I made a plan for increasing the time: "Add one minute each exercise session, and NEXT week, ride for TEN minutes. By the FOLLOWING week, ride for FIFTEEN minutes each session..." and so on. I now ride for 30 minutes a session in addition to 20 minutes on my stair climber and various other weight or cardio activities, and the reason I succeeded is that I carefully planned how I would bump up the intensity of my workouts each week.

It's been over two years now (so how many Mondays would that be: 110 or so, maybe?) In order to find time to pursue the many activities I now enjoy, I still plan things out week by week.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

None. I make it a habit not to start things on Monday.

I have not said that.

How many Mondays have been and gone since you said "I'll start next week"?!
