Self Imposed Expectations -- Friend or Foe
1/3/09 Tomorrow will mark the end of my 20 min task list used to keep me from watching TV all week. It worked, I was very motivated and focused however, I am not quite satisfied with what the final results will be. I did keep moving and I did accomplish more then what I have in the past. However:
"Deep Thought" My accomplishments never turn out the way I think they should, because of this I have a hard time taking pride in my accomplishments.
"Revelation" Humm this must be one reason that I procrastinate. No matter what I do the end results of my efforts never feel or look like what I expected. Not sure how to change this feeling or how to get over self imposed expecations. This I know as I look back over my post for the past 5 days I have worked hard, stayed motivated and focused so I should not beat myself up over self imposed expectations that where never accomplished.
"Food for Thought" As I work through my plans for the day I have to think of a way to get over fruitless self imposed expecations that steal my "thunder"
Any comments would be greatly appricated as I try to wrap my mind around this and come up with a way to get over my self imposed expectations so that I can enjoy my accomplishments.
