So today’s photography challenge is another snapshot of a motivational saying I found somewhere on the internet and then repackaged it for myself.
One of the things I’ve realized over the last few months, is that I can’t attach my progress to whether or not other people notice it. I know they’ll notice if I point it out, or if its obvious (say sticking with a workout regime and eating better–the weight and inches will slowly start coming off).
So I’ve been setting small goals and keeping track of them in my bullet/normal journal. I’ve decided that there are a few areas that I do need to try to think long term on (namely what type of industry position do I want to start going for), but for other things–short term is better, as it is easier to define and know that “I want to accomplish [X] by this day” and be able to check those days off a calendar.
My latest goal so far has been to stick with beachbody workouts, and I’ve managed that for the past two weeks. I’m not sticking with any one program, but making my own little hybrid calendar and going off of that. But its been two weeks straight of workouts, and I’ve started to increase the weights on the barbells (we’ll see how I feel in the morning).
So, while I will share my goals–I may or may not share the time frame for them. That way, while I will have the accountability of announcing them, there won’t be the “extra” strain or stress of wondering if I don’t meet the time frame what will others think.
