She is challenging us to start somewhere, and get motivated to small but meaningful action today. Whether you have a long history of worrying or simply want to learn but concentration habits, Hutchinson's chapter on "connecting with the present" is by far one of the most valuable chapters in the book.

By focusing on meeting one smaller goal per day, we're on our way to a life of improved motivation already. Just as helpful is Hutchinson's chapter on short-term planning.
