It occurs to me that I am on a journey to create my best self. Some days I definitely feel that I move more towards that goal than others. In the last week, I’ve felt a bit distracted and tired the last week but I still recognize that I get more done than most people in a given day or week.
What do I do to stay focused on improving me?
- Stick with my morning routine
- Have monthly personal and professional goals
- Keep learning through reading personal & business development books, listening to audio books & podcasts, and researching new trends
- Eat healthy most of the time by incorporating organic foods, eliminating a lot of processed foods and limiting my sugar intake
When I’m feeling a bit scattered and tired, I focus on staying on track even more. For me, routine is essential, especially if I’m feeling scattered and tired. I may reduce parts of the routine as needed but I stay in routine. Then I get more done and I’m more focused. When I need to take a day off, I can.
It’s all about staying on track to take small steps daily to improve. It’s those micro steps that show as much larger steps at the end of the day. I realize when I set two goals for the month that by the end of the year, I accomplish 24 items that has an even greater impact. James Clear, in his book, Atomic Habits, talks about building a system for getting 1% better every day.
If you are able to get 1% better each and every day, look at how much improved you will be at the end of a year, five years, a lifetime? I will create my best self! Ultimately, I want to leave the world a better place than when I arrived.
