You might have seen me say before that it’s all about the little wins that will keep you going. I’m serious, it really is.
Take pride in your small wins. It will make you feel vindicated in your trials and journey. You’ll feel a sense of accomplishment. It doesn’t mean you’re done, but it does mean you’re making progress. If you set your goals too high, sure it’s admirable to want to save the world, but if it starts to feel like it takes too long, you’ll get frustrated and maybe quit.
When you set a goal, make it measurable, make it feasible, and give it a deadline. Feel happy when you get there, and set a new goal to meet.
