When we are so focussed on a problem, looking in, staring at, trying to solve it, trying to make it better, adding, deleting, writing, erasing, training, stopping, we sometimes forget to stop being so critical of ourselves and take a step back to look at what we’ve really accomplished.
We shouldn’t be driven by external factors, but sometimes they are a great way to slap us upside the head and remind us.
“You are doing good work, you are getting there, don’t stop now.”
So next time you feel frustrated, step away, look at things from a distance and take a moment to realize how far you’ve come.
