This weekend, I didn’t get as much accomplished as I’d wanted. There are a number of reasons for this. I didn’t sleep well and let myself sleep in, cutting into my available time. I completed several small, non-critical tasks rather than focusing my efforts on the bigger, more important things. The bigger, more important things took longer than I’d expected. I procrastinated.
Now, that’s not to say I was unaccomplished this weekend. I worked out. I signed up for a new gym membership. I prepared for my upcoming work week. There were a number of things I legitimately accomplished.
But doing those types of things was the exception not the rule this weekend. My full list of activities would also have to include checking Facebook, reading articles, reading online comics, reading funny posts/memes.
In other words, there were a number of opportunities for me to do more, to do better, and I didn’t take them. But one of the things I’ve been learning with this project is that I won’t be perfect every day. Some days, I won’t even be close. And that’s ok.
We all have off days. Why beat myself up over it? Instead, I’m going to let it go. Rather than wallowing in what could have been a better yesterday, I’m going to focus on building a better tomorrow.
I’m going to revisit my Values and Goals through my weekly Definement. I’m going to recommit to improving myself.
And I’ll keep recommitting myself to that goal. As many times as it takes.
See you at the finish line.
