“You only ever have to do what you’re capable of doing, because by design, no matter how things appear, you’ll always have enough time to do it, you’ll do even better than you thought, and life will get even richer than you imagined.
The Universe”©Mike Dooley, http://tut.com
The feeling of accomplishment is primarily based on following a to-do list of items and making sure they are completed by the end of the day. If we are successful at it, we feel accomplished. If not, then we start feeling guilty about being unproductive. This feeling is common among many ambitious minds looking to do the next great thing. Whatever they do throughout the day is never enough. They add more and more to their to-do list and end up feeling they haven’t accomplished much, or work so hard at it that they end up burning out. This is definitely not the right way to look at life. I am sure that you are aware that there is 24 hours in any given day, and 7 days in a week. You can do whatever you want with these 24 hours and it is up to you to maximize the time you are awake. It is all about time management. You still have to eat, sleep, shower, spend time with family and manage to stay successful at it. This is and will always be a big challenge.
If you take your time to do things the right way, it will always come out better than you will ever think, and will render much greater results. When you rush, chances are to make mistakes are greater. So when these mistakes are made, you feel saddened and disappointed with yourself and accomplishment. Your self esteem drops drastically and end up feeling down and depressed. Why go through this turmoil? You can easily avoid all of that by just taking your time to complete the task the right way and pay attention to every detail. Focus on the task and add the quality touch to it. Once you feel satisfied, you can move on to the next task on the list. Keep on doing the same thing for everything else in your life and success should follow.
