There are times when we get to the end of the day and ask ourselves if there was any point to the day. When we hit those moments, if they are rare, we can roll with them, go to bed and wake up renewed. If those moments are more than rare, we need to invest some time in a way to make sure we can look back on every day with a sense of accomplishment.
Take some time and reflect on things we must do compared to the things we’d do if we had unlimited time and money. Some of those “unlimited” things are going to be way out of reach for this project, but it’s still a good idea to think far and wide. What would we do in a week if we could? Are any of those things items we could work on a tiny bit daily?
Take something absolutely ordinary. Exercise. Start small. A 5 minute walk a day. Diet. Add one type of nutritious food and eat a small amount (of a different food) daily. You can pick any kind of activity—a hobby for instance, but make sure it’s something you enjoy, not something you’re going to feel obligated to do.
Pick three or four of these items, and do your best to work toward and objective daily. Of course you have work or school, ten thousand other things you must do, or you feel like it. If—if you can give yourself credit for getting some of these items done every day, you need to do so. However, adding some pleasurable activity to our lives that you can say at the end of the day, “at least I got….done” can be of great help if you are prone to overlooking your daily accomplishments.
You have to learn to give yourself credit. If everything could be accomplished in a single day, that would nullify the need for a tomorrow, wouldn’t it?
