Focus on Your Achievements
Do you often think about what you still have to do each day?
Does this feel overwhelming? Does there always seem so much to
do that you don't feel as if you're achieving enough?
I've found that when I start coaching people, either in business
or personally, many of them focus on what still needs to be
done. They seem to forget or discard all that they have
achieved. When you get to the end of your day are you still
thinking about what you haven't done? Perhaps there are some
days when you accomplish a lot and you feel as if you've
achieved something - that's a great feeling isn't it?
How do you feel about the other days when you believe you
haven't done enough? When we focus on what we haven't completed
we're highlighting our weaknesses. Focusing on our strengths is
a much more positive approach. In what ways can you focus on
I suggest that you create for yourself an achievement journal.
In this, you write each day about all the things you've
achieved. Grab the opportunity to say "well done" to yourself.
The journal may be a pleasant notebook or a document on your
computer where you cut and paste items completed from your
schedule - or even a loose piece of paper. You can either list
them all or choose three. I really encourage you to make time
each day to list your achievements. You're worth it.
