“Make a little progress every day and it will add up to big results.”
When you feel overwhelmed, stop. Take a quick break to focus on how far you’ve come.
What do I mean?
Well… what ever it is that you are doing, even if you’re way behind, it has to be further along than you are thinking! What were the steps that lead to this moment?
OK if that doesn’t work for you… how about this… look into the future. When you feel overwhelmed today but the deadline is in 48 hours, imagine what it will feel like in 72 hours! You’ll be done! (This is how I survived finals week, back in school) – not sure if it was good for my grades, but I did graduate.
So exactly how does “a little progress” add up? I was looking at my blog posts today – I made a commitment to post daily and it didn’t seem like it would be a big deal, but I adopted the style of creating an Episode number so I could gauge just how far I’ve come. I consider it an internal motivator. It’s just an easy way for me to keep track… it’s also an easy way to find an episode, too.
But every day there is a new post and every day that progress adds up… most about about a page long…imagine if I printed all of those pages. As of today, I’d have a 274 page book! That’s crazy! And it is meant to motivate you.
You can do it too, take your large task and simply start. If you decide you want to add content to your website and decide the best form is to create 5 top 5 lists. You want a page for each of the items on the list. That’s going to come to 25 pages of content. That’s a lot to write down in one sitting – however, if you choose to write one page every day, that’s no big deal! In one month, you’ll have all 25 pages done!
It’s like a spare change jar. You throw change in, and soon you’ll have a couple hundred dollars. Just another idea for you!
