Years ago a friend of mine gave me that magnet, “Today is going to be one of those days where my coffee needs coffee.”
Of course I could give in and give up.
Instead I’m setting one micro-goal at a time.
> intelligently respond to an email
> add 3 slides to the presentation I’m working on
> craft one GREAT coaching question I can use with multiple people
Nothing earth shattering, but at the end of the day I’ll have accomplished something.
Instead of leaving dejected, I’ll have something that made me feel good about the day – done.
A box checked off on my list.
I love micro-goals (this blog post was one of mine). They make it easy to keep going when you’re TIRED.
