Are You Always Busy, But Not Getting Anything Done?
This Week's Simple Tip
Each year for my birthday, I reflect on my life and decide what changes, if any, I want to make emotionally, spiritually, financially, socially, mentally and physically. Like all humans, I am a creature of habit and while driven, have difficulty incorporating new changes into my routine.
One of my biggest challenges is when I can't SEE my progress. I found a trick that helps that I thought I would share ...
As the saying goes, "life by the yard is hard, but life by the inch is a cinch." Likewise, I find if I break my end goal down to smaller milestones that ultimately yield the same result, I am much more likely to successfully make the change! So for example, one of my goals is to regularly drink 3 liters of water per day. I currently only drink 1 liter per day. So my milestones will be:
First two weeks drink 1.5 liters / day
Second two weeks drink 2.0 liters / day
Third two weeks drink 2.5 liters / day
Fourth two weeks drink 3.0 liters / day
Embrace it because you feel so much better :)
This Week's Focus
This week, when you go to tackle something on your TO DO list, break it down to smaller TO DO's that when done, will have the same result but feel less overwhelming. Instead of worrying about cleaning your entire desk, shift your focus to one pile at a time! Click on the serenity sticky to print, cut and post on your bathroom mirror to remind you of this week's focus. Good luck!
