A friend recently re-did her living room. After ripping out some built-in cabinets, she discovered approximately a zillion Flinstones Vitamins—the ones she gave her kids for all those years—piled up into a mountain.
This is a message about progress.
One vitamin after another—being hid behind those cabinets for years by her children—really added up.
Unfortunately, the vitamins would have made more impact had her children actually digested them and not spit them out. (Upon making her discovery, her college-aged children confessed, and they all laughed.)
Why are we telling you this?
Because if you put one vitamin behind a cabinet every day for a few years, it makes an impressive pile of vitamins. A mountain, in fact.
This is what you can do, too, by doing something small every day.
We are so quick to discount our small steps. Even our tiny steps. If they aren’t HUGE, we beat ourselves up or say they don’t matter.
At Hello Sunday, we believe in celebrating every bit of progress—even the tiniest bit. And some days…thinking about your goal is progress.
Little by little, things add up!
Yes, it’s fun to check something off a list…but the progress along the way matters too. We learn during the progress part.
So how can you make a mountain?
Break your goals down into tiny Flinstones-vitamin-sized steps. And check those off your list!
Break big projects and goals down into teeny-tiny action steps.
Draw a little progress bar or chart, and shade it in as you go.
You’ll feel more accomplished on the days you *think* you got nothing done.
Because you’re doing better than you think.
And most importantly…when it’s not happening as quickly as you might like, remember there’s joy in the (well-planned) journey. In a light and grateful heart…there’s always room for laughter and flexibility.
Hello Sunday lets you be super-duper organized. And Hello Sunday lets you be flexible, too.
Lots of love (for you and for Him),
The team at Hello Sunday/The Hello Sunday Planner
