When we ask someone what an accomplishment to them would be what do we hear?
“My name was in the newspaper”
“I became mayor”
“I bought and sold property for a profit”
“I ran 50 miles”
These are accomplishments – maybe even great ones
But what is an accomplishment? It’s the successful completion of a task
So accomplishments could also be:
Getting to work early
Thinking before speaking
Maintaining posture during chaos
Holding the door for someone
These are all accomplishments too.
If we focus only on the grand accomplishments, we may become discouraged when our name isn’t in the paper everyday.
The little things every day.
Let’s always acknowledge our accomplishments, they all take effort.
