Working on being 1% better every day… today I set my alarm for five minutes earlier. I figured since I’m always five minutes late to everything I would start from the beginning of my day and give myself a little more time. Spoiler alert: I still made it to work at the same time- scooting in a few minutes behind schedule as usual. BUT before I left home I did get my dishes done, all of my stuff packed for the day (I usually forget at least one important item), let my car warm up so I wasn’t totally shivering while peering through one corner of my frozen windshield… and even left a note telling my boyfriend to have a good day.
Maybe it doesn’t seem like much, but I really feel like it started my day off on the right foot. Its almost 10am and I haven’t yet missed those 5 extra minutes of sleeping, but I do feel more accomplished than most other mornings. I think part of it is the intention as well. I recognized that I don’t feel good about being late all the time so I took a small step towards changing that fact. What is one thing in your life you could improve on by 1%? What would give you that little taste of accomplishment towards a bigger goal?
