“There are two days in the year that we can not do anything, yesterday and tomorrow” ― Mahatma Gandhi
This is a quote that I came across this week and it just stuck in my mind. I hadn’t seen it before and it came to me at a time when I needed it.
I started to get ahead of myself in some planning and thoughts on what I have going on in my life at the moment. It caused me to be a bit anxious. This quote was a great reminder to stay within the bounds of what I can control and to enjoy the journey that is happening today.
Bringing this model of thinking into your work can also be helpful. There are times when a project might seem large, or a task might seem confusing. Focus on what you can do today and do now. Tomorrow’s problems will be different and yesterday’s are uncontrollable now. Take one step at a time and enjoy the process of learning, growing, and creating!
Let me know if you’ve felt similarly!
