As read on Homemakers.com, The Bright Side column: Make an I-did-it list.
… have you ever considered getting motivated for the new year by making an I-did-it list for all of the things you’ve already accomplished? … before you write out the things you want to do in 2011, take a moment to appreciate all the great things you did in 2010.
What things have you done that you could give yourself a pat on the back for accomplishing? What did you cross off your to-do list? What deadlines and goals have you met.
Give yourself credit for a job well done before you think about all that you still have to do. Keep a balanced perspective.
