Hello all! It’s such a joy to be here today, thank you for joining me. In uncertain times, I find that “going smaller” sometimes helps. Using small, short-term goals to keep me moving forward in my journey. This week I resolved to really pay attention to my sleep, and just work on each night as my daily goal. I’ve found myself happier and healthier already, and it’s such a small thing. What “micro goals” can you set for yourself this week?

An important thing to remember about “small” goals is that they’re actually not small at all. They are bricks in a foundation, a step towards our ultimate goals.

If we can see them as a part of a whole, even little things become bigger wins. That creates a positive feedback loop for us.

As anyone who’s ever done something hard knows: believing you can is a huge part of the battle.

@michael-eldridge-1 Draw how I feel and watch comedy tv shows or movies. Remind myself that is okay to feel sad and not avoid it.

That’s a great strategy. Avoidance is impossible. Peace and acceptance we can do a lot for.

Setting and then reaching “micro goals” sets up our success habits.

What are some of your best accomplishments? Don’t think small or large, what comes to mind first?

The things we did and strategies we’ve used we can repeat. We often “forget” our wins wayyyyy too quickly.

We hold our losses and failures too close.

Why? Seems awfully unfair to us doesn’t it?

And not realistic! As I say to clients often: I’m not an optimist. I’m a realist. You have all done wonderful things and made great progress. Focus on what worked before and how we can take it forward.

Those are huge steps. Do you track the days where you succeed? Making our goals measurable- 3 good days this week, etc- give us something to build on.

And if I have a “low grade” week: that’s OK. I set my sites to my next week and try to beat my score.

I like to look at weekly and then make longer “score grids” for a few months.

I am new today. I am guessing this is a 30 minute session. The subject is sleep. RIGHT?
