It’s another Monday and definitely a good time to set expectations for the rest of the week, and the rest of the year! Given the tumultuous nature of the year with the pandemic disrupting the regular flow of business and work, here’s some Monday Motivation to help you break boundaries as we look forward to the future.
It’s quite easy to see an insurmountable amount of work that needs to be done even as businesses and work struggle to recover from the downturns of the pandemic- and a wave of protests around the world too. It’s not far-fetched to say that practically everyone lost something or the other during this quite turbulent year and rebuilding can actually be arduous, but not impossible.
Just as the popular saying goes, “from small beginnings come great things“; it’s important to not lose sight of the values that matter when rebuilding and setting things right for the future. Either in our personal lives, businesses or workplaces we have to set our mindsets right to reflect the positivity of little steps.
For our Monday Motivation, we remind ourselves that every little step counts in rebuilding any structure that would last. To rebuild and break boundaries entails paying attention to the small things even when your sights are set on the bigger picture. This means that when breaking even looks like a giant task, take it easy by first ensuring that the basics that need to be done are covered.
Quite realistically, it takes less time to destroy than to actually build so it can be quite frustrating when rebuilding after a very difficult year seems to be taking too long. It is, however, our duty to ourselves to ensure that we tackle our losses with faith and belief in our abilities to scale through. This means appreciating the little steps that lead to great and bigger things.
When you approach that seemingly daunting task with faith and belief in your ability to scale through, doing the little things that matter in a systematic and organized manner would definitely see you through. Most daunting tasks are made up of small easily resolved problems bonded together in exaggerated unity to look gargantuan and unsolvable.
Taking time to analyze and disband the problems into smaller and separated units would help you tackle each one head-on without feeling overwhelmed- and that in itself is the power of little steps that help you break boundaries! Believe in yourself and take those little but important steps today!
