Pause to think about why you’re doing what you’re doing today.
Past and present circumstances and the choices you made led to the place you stand today.
Five years from now, each of us will have had some level of success. Things will evolve, and some opportunities will present themselves (while others won’t). At that time, it will behoove us to reflect on whether we’re any closer to ‘why’ than when we started.
If we don’t take time to appreciate the progress we’ve made, we’ll put ourselves at risk of burnout, stress and anxiety.
If we do take those moments and celebrate the past, we give ourselves the opportunity to experience gratitude, refocus, and pivot where necessary.
