Results: Day 5 of 21
Today’s assignment was becoming aware of potential obstacles to reaching my goal of developing my new habit (the main one I’m focusing on is the mail-sorting/paper-handling). I like this idea because it is great to be able to determine what I may be up against so I can watch out for it and not let it derail my efforts. There was some good information and practical tips in the recommended article on “5 Steps to Developing Discipline” by Michael Hyatt.
I feel like now I am equipped to handle the challenges that may come my way (or rather WILL come) since I’ve come up with a plan on how to handle them. Meanwhile, I’m loving the absence of piles in my kitchen! Now I just need to carve out some time to deal with the piles that have accrued while I was not using my file system! Baby steps. Bite-sized pieces. I will get there. 🙂 I was just talking with my mom today about not beating myself up when I don’t reach a goal or accomplish something I had hoped to. Just reset the goal, make it something realistic and attainable, and press on toward it. The more I attain itty bitty goals, the more confidence and motivation I will have to tackle larger goals. 🙂
