If you find yourself motivated – and I mean the kind of motivated that requires you to have four arms and two heads – you’re going to fall behind. It’s okay. You can’t do everything. There’s no perfect schedule that runs without a few hiccups.
I’m behind this week. Rather than try to cram in everything I want to get done, I took a deep breath, relaxed, and allowed myself to let some things go.I’m making shorts instead of my usual long video. I’m creating this short article instead of my usual longer copy. I've even decided to change up my blogs and videos to redirect my energy towards the most important stuff. I’m still showing up so I can prove to myself that I’m a professional that gets things done, while making my life a little easier.
If you’re behind, allow yourself to accomplish your habits in a more bite-sized fashion. Let yourself change things up. You can feel accomplished without feeling like you failed.
