Winning comes in various shapes and forms. Even small achievements add up to a beautiful picture of progress.
My small wins come in the form of daily tasks successfully executed. I know the challenges that come with tackling the big picture of my various roles. It feels good to be able to break down that picture and churn through its smaller parts.
When I am at work, I ignore the noise of blaring deadlines. I maintain composure by breaking down the goals that go into hitting that mark.
The victory at the end of each project is sweeter when it is made up of small achievements. I encourage myself when I hit those. It keeps me from becoming frazzled. Slow and steady always wins the race.
Successfully repaying debt is a personal accomplishment that is cause for celebration. I see my increasing net worth as something to be proud of.
Progress is my target in both professional and personal areas of life. The progress of others is hardly relevant to me. I make myself my only competition. It is enough of a challenge to beat my own personal best at anything.
Today, my thoughts turn to my accomplishments for the hours behind me. I smile with pride when I use my time productively. Each day has its own wins, and it gives me pleasure to acknowledge each of them.
- How do I keep myself from becoming unreasonably competitive?
