I define my days by how much I get done. I judge myself by how much was accomplished on my list. I define my life by how many things I can complete.
On a day that I feel scattered and I don’t get much finished, I don’t feel very good about myself. When I get calls it breaks my concentration and I feel pulled in too many directions.
I've started to ask myself, "What do I need to do today to feel good about myself?" If I can accomplish that very small list of one or two items, no matter what else does or doesn't get done, I feel like I've had a productive day. Sometimes, these are things I'd rather put off doing. And doing those things is a great accomplishment indeed!
So today's accomplishment is adding this mini-bouquet. I also scanned 2 important documents (now to send them off!) But what I REALLY want to get done is to send off my children's book to one publisher. Just one. One publisher. I can do this. One thing. Well, maybe not today. Maybe Monday. For sure on Monday!
