Look, I'm sure I'm not unique in the fact that I'm not a fan of failure.Intellectually, yes, I understand concepts like "failing fast" are an essential part of achieving success —"I didn't fail, I found a thousand waysnot to make a light bulb,"and blah blah blah.
Still, as a goal-oriented person, I don't like that initial sting of when I realize something has gone horribly wrong — whether it's apaid media campaign gone awryor the realization that I've somehow managed to murder yet another unsuspecting houseplant.
True story, my friends like to joke that I'm a hospice facility for plants, helping them make their transition to the next chapter...

Anyway, I bring this up because one of the ways I'm struggling right now is feeling like a failure at home during quarantine.
When are we going to get another opportunity to have so much time on our hands, right? Yet there are still so many projects in my life that I haven't moved on. I should probably do more cleaning. There are still plenty of books on my nightstand that I haven't read.Etc., etc., etc.
So, to help flip my mindset, I want to focus on what I feel aremy accomplishmentsthroughout these past (almost) eight weeks of quarantine:
I have not caved and watchedTiger King.
I have not made a single loaf of banana bread. I will not cave on this either, as I'm certain this sudden quarantine trend is a diabolical conspiracy perpetrated by the nefarious banana lobby.
If you're struggling similarly with feelings of,"I'm not doing enough!"or"No matter how many items I check off my list, I always feel behind!"here is my challenge for you today:
Make a list of your accomplishments from the past eight weeks.Like me, you can also considernotdoing something a success, as those speak to your exceptional powers of self-control and the fact that you're a superstar. ⭐
