We make a difference

When a butterfly flutters its wings in one part of the world, it can eventually cause a hurricane in another.

Edward Norton Lerenz

If, in chaos theory, a butterfly can impact the outcome of natural forces then why would we, as humans, not regard our every move as important?

It is extremely easy to forget that what we aim to achieve in the future (whether it be next year, five years or ten) is achieved by what we do today. Having goals that are only achievable in the span of years is not practical.

Break them down.

Turn your five year goal into smaller, more attainable, monthly or even weekly goals. Not only will this make the end-goal less daunting it will also provide you with a monthly “hell yes” instead of a weekly “what am I really doing with my life”.

Not only does this technique work for big life goals but it can also help with when you are trying to manage your workload, or even housework. Start with the more immediate and pressing problems and work your way towards the less time-sensitive issues. By focusing on one part of the problem you are already working on a solution.

Remember, you’ve got this!

Thursday Reminder

What we do now reflects in the future. it may not impact tomorrow or even next week. But it will.

It is easy to forget that our every action has a reaction. We don’t necessarily regard every single day as a day that can impact our lives forever, but we should. What if today you finished that novel? What if today you finally run that 5K in your desired time? What if you read an article that would stir up the emotions needed to take action? There are so many “what if” scenarios in everyday life that it is nearly impossible to connect one variable to the other. But the chance is there, it is always there.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for!

Whether or not it is quitting a bad habit, getting up a few minutes earlier to enjoy the sunrise or simply drinking that glass of water. Small things have the biggest impacts because we are able to complete a numerous amount of them in a short period of time.
