One Thing At A Time
A recent sit-down with a client left me focusing on one idea- the simplistic approach to sticking to one thing at a time. We live in such an "instant satisfaction" type of society where people are in such a rush to accomplish too many agenda items in limited time spans. Focusing on one thing at a time allows us to cherish each single event, allowing them to appear more individually sacred.
This particular client was mentioning how she'd LOVE to fit into a specific bathing suit next summer. While I admired her selection of a long-term goal, I made sure to remind her that several events need to happen along the way. These events being the "one thing at a time" type of events (i.e. eating breakfast every day, not skipping meals, getting adequate rest every night, etc...) She realized that to fit into this new bathing suit would take a daily commitment of the aforementioned events. Focusing on one thing at a time is the best approach toward achieving your goals, whether short or long-term.
What are some of your short and long-term goals and what individual steps are you taking to make sure you meet these goals? Shoot me an email at the following: firstname.lastname@example.org
I'd love to hear from you!
