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
- Any trick to really first do the most important tasks?
- What color pen and paper to use for professional purposes
- How often do you complete everything from your to-do list?
- How do you keep track of things that you want to get done but not necessarily today?
- Do you use this to help with ADHD?
- How do I keep from making the list impossible to get done in a day?
- I have found the anxiety of listing leads me to more destructive avoidance behaviors. Do you have this problem? What do you do about it?
- Do you ever put frivolous activities on your to do list?
- How can I incorporate a disability into a feasible Todo list? Some days are bad, the pain is bad, I am not.
- How do you handle long term ToDo items? Things like « Thinking about future life projects », which is more of a background task than an actual item to « do » in the moment per se.
