One thing I found really useful over the years, and so have those with whom I’ve worked, is to keep in mind the main point of your effort.
You don’t have to agonise over it, or drive yourself insane because your progress Is varied.
That’s normal. It’s also natural. None of us is perfect. So when we set on a journey, we get diversions, distractions, interruptions and all the rest of the things that can happen in the course of a lifetime.
Allow them happen and to deal with them as they arise, keeping the main point in mind all the time.
It’s a bit like using a compass. You go off track, check the compass and work your way back on course. It applies to long goals, short goals intermediate goals, every kind of goal and aspiration you can think of.
So, be a friend to yourself. See it for what it is. Deal with the challenges
And to keep the main point in mind.
