I finished rebranding my website after two days of solid work. I forgot to eat, forgot to sleep and didn't notice how day and night blended into one big blur. So when I finally launched it (an experience I'll be sharing next week) I was getting ready for bed, looking in the mirror while brushing my teeth and suddenly I had this epiphany... During these two overloaded days, I was focusing on what I had, rather than what I didn't have.
I was looking forward to launching the website since August. I waited this long for a reason. It was all planned out and thought out. I accumulated everything I had into one big result.
Everyone is always telling us about planning forward, about thinking towards our goals. But where does it actually leaves us? In my world, it leaves me worrying about all the things that I don't have. I think that I want to reach a certain goal and I still don't have 'a', 'b' and 'c' to do it.
Keep gathering one little result after another. It will make sense later, like a puzzle. If it correlates to your bigger goal, everything eventually will come together. It is so easy to fall into a trap of comparison, self doubt and a fear of time that is running out. I hear you. But trust me, if you focus on what you have today, that thought will make you want to wake up in the morning and do the work!
It was supposed to be a Monday motivation message, but I know it's never too late!
