What Do You Want From Today?
When you get to the end of your day, today, what do you hope to have achieved?
How many mornings do you think about that? How often do you have goals that are more than get groceries, pick-up dry cleaning, get to the office on time, go to the kids’ soccer games tonight, make dinner?
Are any of those things getting you closer to your long-term goals or are they just letting you survive your day?
What would happen if you changed your daily goal and before finalizing your daily To-Do List, you asked yourself, “What can I do today, to get closer to my long-term goals?” and “How can I enjoy it?”
My goal for every day is to complete things I have to do, enjoy things I want to and make progress so that I am closer to achieving my long-term goals tomorrow when I wake up than I was today when I woke up.
Today is about growth and progress! I’ve discovered that when I make progress, I enjoy it. Days with progress are enjoyable.
I want to publish my second book next year, so every day, I write. I write because I want to and not because I have to. I write because I enjoy making progress and ending the day knowing that I am closer to my goal than I was when the day started.
You can do the same. Do you want to go on a family vacation? What did you do to get closer to that goal? Did you look at times and places to go? Is money an issue? Did you take lunch to work or did you go out to eat? Did you buy Starbucks today or did you make coffee at home?
Progress can be made every day! And Today’s progress just makes achieving tomorrow’s goals easier! #IgniteYourLife
