Tiny Changes Help Transform Today’s Failures into the Beginning of Success — Daily Quote

Life is a series of never-ending challenges, and I have the To-Do list to prove it. Tying to return to pre-vacation scheduling is causing more than the usual number of headaches. Everything feels out of whack, off track, and running on the edge of disaster. They say Rome wasn’t built in a day, but that isn’t my fault. Restoring order and domestic tranquility sounds like a deceptively simple process. Yet, it requires mountains of effort, too much time, and the glacial pace is quickly eroding the positive benefits of my break.

That wouldn’t do. I realized I was declaring myself a failure by using the wrong measuring standards. This wasn’t a normal week, the default settings changed, but my expectations hadn’t. So, I took a deep breath and switched tactics. Sometimes the answer to bolstering our determination, improving our morale, and producing an overwhelming sense of triumph is to concentrate on a single, modest element. There is immense power in one tiny accomplishment that we can move to the completed column.

With a point in the win column, we have a valid reason to pat ourselves on the back and do a little victory dance. With one detail resolved, we are free to finish the next item. The wins accumulate like pearls in a necklace. It can make all the difference.

What small win can you make happen today?


Keep on writing.
