I love emptying my mind on to a piece of paper and identifying what’s important to me and what isn’t whilst creating a list.
But if I get caught in the cycle of writing a list everyday, it very quickly feels like a slog, which doesn’t reach a satisfying conclusion. I tick things off and write another list tomorrow.
I write a list and imagine that it’ll feel great once all those things are ticked off. However, when I tick things off the satisfaction doesn’t last very long.
So instead of simply writing a ‘to do’ list, and ticking things off, only to create another list the next day…
Create a ‘ta da’ list. Spend more time celebrating what you have already done.
Like, look what I did.
Celebrate and appreciate your actions.
Acknowledging your small successes allows your acknowledgment muscle to be exercised! Without the regular exercise, it won’t have the strength to allow you to feel great when those bigger successes come along, you’ll simply move the goal posts and make a new to do list!
