I want to be a millionaire, I want a big house, I want to travel, I want to be famous, I want an airplane, I want to retire at the age of 45! These might be few goals and dreams that some people might have. By trying reaching these goals, we forget the daily goals that will lead us to our desired result.
Today after I moved from my old office to my new office, I sat in front of my computer feeling exhausted when by accident my weekly “Goal” list was on my desk. That moment I realized that I had reached more goals than I listed and yet I wasn’t feeling fulfilled. I was feeling that something is missing and I couldn’t be happy with the fact that my list was checked! Sometimes we might have our check list done but not being enough. Shouldn’t I thought be celebrating that I did accomplished all my goals. Shouldn’t I be satisfied?
Daily, we are having lot of wins and achievements that we don’t acknowledge them and therefore we don’t recognize them. Have you ever stop whatever you are doing and just think in silence of what you might have achieved through the day? If we don’t acknowledged of what we have achieved, then no one else can do it for us and therefore no one can acknowledge us.
Check below a brief exercise that might assist you in establishing more acknowledgment:
Start from today by writing down on a paper your weekly goals in bullet points based on priority issue.
Then on Friday lunch time go through again that list and write next to each bullet point comment of what you have done.
Lastly, please observe in which goal you have spent more time and then you might realize exactly which you priorities are and you can celebrate any small achievement you will definitely have achieved.
So, I will close my computer after finishing this that o am writing now, and go celebrate out with my kids the fact that I did accomplished all my weekly goals, but also, the fat that we must be grateful for what we have. The ability to move in new office, reach my goals, the ability to breathe, walks and enjoy these moments.
Yes, sometimes we need to PAUSE and acknowledged what we have, what we have accomplished and be grateful. Enjoy.
