In a year where we’ve faced so many challenges and have been forced to adjust our goals and plans over and over, it’s easy to feel like we’re getting nowhere fast. But that’s simply not true.
It may be hard to see the small wins in your life in the midst of all the chaos in the world right now, but writing them down helps so much. I keep track of mine in this simple notebook, and it’s made such a difference in how I feel about myself.
It’s proof that good things are happening and that you’re making progress… maybe in a different way, or on a slightly different schedule than you planned… but you’re still moving forward.
Any win counts.
Try this exercise and let me know if it helps you. Don’t wait until you hit your ultimate goal to feel accomplished. Always celebrate your small wins. ️
