In today’s fast paced world, and constant deadlines, it can be very easy to get lost in everything you need to do. This quickly becomes a very depressing environment to be stuck in. I’m guilty of this quite a bit. So, it’s important to remember how far you’ve come. I don’t care if it’s a project, a business, or a marriage. It can be very easy to focus on what you haven’t accomplished. Whenever this mindset starts to get you down, I encourage you to try the following…
Write down everything you are proud of. Pull out a notebook, and just start writing. Enter as many things as you can. Don’t confine it to any one area of your life. This simple exercise forces you to look back at all of the good things you’ve done or accomplished. For example, you can proud of overcoming your fear of heights by going up into a skyscraper, or you can be proud that you fixed those shelves in the garage on your own. It doesn’t matter… the whole idea is to shift your mindset to what you’ve done, because it will help remind you that you are capable of accomplishing all the things left on your list.
I encourage you to make this a regular habit. Either just re-reading your list, or adding to it for everything you accomplished recently. It’s important to remember that you can be just as proud of little things, as big things, and often the little things are more valuable to the people in your life.
Take it from me, I often get hung up on all the things I want/need to accomplish, so i really need to look back. It’s a quick refreshing exercise to shift you into a positive mindset.
