When overwhelmed by goals, resolutions and missions, it gets really hard to keep our feet on the ground. The head becomes as big as a helium balloon moving up to the sky, leaving the rest of our being dissociated.
The worst, once our “one big goal” is not achieved from one day to the other, impatience kicks in and we get tired of ourselves, of our failures, and we lose motivation and inner talks of blame rise for not being xxxx enough or being xxxx too much.
What if in this new decade you’d try to find those suiting goals that would allow you to do something little every day? A thing as little that you can’t really miss it, but if you do for any reason, you don’t need to punish yourself because you couldn’t achieve it?
It is when we are capable to stop in the midst of our hardest moments, instead of following those well-known draining paths, that we learn how things can be done differently. And these possibilities await to be discovered, only a few inches away from our usual and well-worn habitual reactions.
Find something you’d like to change or achieve, and make a plan: what is the smallest part you can do today, and tomorrow, and all the following days to reach your goal one day? Translate your dreams into actions, little by little.
Only today counts, only this tiny little step you’ve just started with. And as you commence, you feel you are on your way. There is no rush.
May the path of little things flourish to reach those big ones you’ve always wanted to.
Time passes anyway. So even on your busiest, saddest day, you can pick just one little stone to move, one little step to make, performing your personal kaizen step on the road to your desired heaven. Even if you have no idea how to get there.
The road will unroll itself below your feet, step by step, have no doubt.
