Falling is always a part of life, but as long as you get up more often than you fall down, that's ok.
This past week I was so busy at work and I have been working really hard on my exercise goal that my money management, diet and cleaning goals were completely neglected. I assessed where I was and how I got there, but I didn't place a negative value judgement on myself. I told myself that I needed a reset on Monday, and I got so much done today! When you allow yourself opportunities to fail, then you notice it and reset when you're able, you'll find that your baseline keeps rising. Yeah, I didn't clean at all last week, but it only took one day to get back to a place that is wayyy better than before I started working on that goal. Progress is not a straight line!
1- Why do I deem this a failure?
2 – By how much did I fail?
3 – Being kind but firm, how much do I know I can manage?
Once you've reflected, reassess and pick a level that's enough of a challenge to give a sense of achievement without being overwhelming.
Hopefully that makes sense?
So with time you’re getting new ways to think about and it will help you to get out of your comfort zone
- How far in advance do you put tasks on your to do list? I am a big procrastinator and if I see something on my to do list that’s not due for a while I tend to just ignore it. Any suggestions on how to solve this?
- How far ahead should one write their list.. i.e. daily, weekly or monthly?
- Is it any way to make do to list more creative but still keep them simple?
- What strategies do you use to prioritize & organize “to do now” vs “to do later” tasks?
- How to make sure you stick to your list when something else that you need to finish first just popped out?
- How to make a to do list more interesting?
- time management? How to be more effective with time? I am a person who cares a lot about details, and in my work, I tend to refine concepts a lot. I find myself time swept often and offset my to do’s.
- How can I do a ideal write to do list? Can you share an example
- How do you manage your energy Vs. Your ambition (i.e. multiplicity of projects you want to do) ?
- How do you prioritise your three main things to do when you have loads more to do?
