It’s important to remember that, more often than not, progress is a series of small steps and not a monumental moment of achievement to be unlocked.
The key to continual progress is to maintain consistent action towards a goal.
Consistent action can look like this:
- Sit annually for a weekend to plan out your year, reflect on the previous, and recalibrate where your goals and passions lie.
- Review these goals quarterly to see what’s working, what’s not, and course correct.
- Take an hour on Sunday to review the previous week, plan for the upcoming, and prioritize 1 or 2 tasks that move the needle forward.
I guarantee that if you start to establish regular time for reflection and check ins, you will see that you are making great strides forward, often at an accelerated pace.
Food For Thought
Do you have a task list of everything you need to be doing?
Take a few moments and see if there are 1 or 2 things in there that need to take priority over everything else as it pertains to helping you move the needle forward.
Now evaluate your current commitments.
What do you need to shift around to make sure these tasks get the love they need and deserve?
