It's important to have goals to work towards but I know for myself I can get so focussed on getting to that goal that I forget to embrace the journey I took to get there.
In forgetting the journey it means that I've lost a small part of the history I took to get to me that next stage and the development I undertook to get there - how I reacted in those situations when it was getting tough and how I dug in when it was tough.
Be Focussed but don't lose focus
If we look at working from just goal to goal we get so focussed on those elements that we forget about the here and now and the journey we're taking along the way.
Remembering to enjoy the journey helps us stay in the present and allows us to see our development in a positive light which increases our motivation and our belief in ourselves.
So today make a point of accepting where you are between your goals and how much effort you've put into to getting there - give yourself a pat on the back and congratulate yourself as to how far you have got!
