What is SUCCESS?
"How much further?"
How many times have you been asked that question?
Better yet, how many times have you asked it in the last year alone?
I think I've personally lost count.
On a number of initiatives.
Like, are we almost there yet?
Well, unfortunately, it's not always easy to tell as success markers are different for each of us.
What one terms a success is just a step in the right direction for another.
Sometimes (more often than I care to admit), it seems I'm going the wrong way.
And that's the painful part of the journey.
Especially not knowing if progress is actually being made.
Two steps forward, one step back.
There are times when it's good to lean out and reassess.
Also, occasions when we should actually realize when we've moved ahead and celebrate smaller wins.
Progress is progress, no matter how small.
Because times will come on the journey when it really just sucks.
And that reality makes the victories all the sweeter if we press through.
In the meantime..
Enjoy any days off, and the well deserved weekends.
..cause maybe we're not quite there yet.
What are YOU celebrating or reflecting on as we embark on 2021?
