“Focusing on your progress sets you up for more progress.” ~Daily Shine

“Focusing on your progress sets you up for more progress.” ~Daily Shine
By Jessica L. Williams • Issue #235 • View online
“I honor my progress today and every day.”
That was the ending mantra in Thursday’s Daily Shine. And I can’t tell you how much I needed to hear that message.
Often we get to the end of the day and focus on the things we could not check off our to-do list. And maybe even beat ourselves up about it. This mantra encourages us to celebrate what we accomplished. No matter how big or small.
Here are a few things I’m happy to have done this week:
  • 👩🏾‍🏫 Led an #IamRemarkable workshop hosted by Mox.E Chicago
  • 🧹 Did some digital organization and cleaned up my emails and bookmarks.
  • 📧 Unsubscribed to a bunch of newsletters that no longer serve me.
  • 🙅🏾‍♀️ Said no to a few opportunities that I probably would have said yes to in the past.
  • 😴 Went to bed around 9 pm each night to give me more time to rest.
What’s on this week’s done list for you? What progress can you honor and celebrate?
On to the picks!
P.S. Is there a question I can answer for you in an upcoming issue of #jesspicks? Hit reply and let me know. I think it could be fun to do an “Ask Jess” column of sorts.

  • 🪄 Tool: Grammarly. I love how Grammarly is like this little spelling, grammar genie in my pocket that’s like, “Hey Jess, you forgot to add a word here and a comma there. And hey, did you mean for this tone to sound weird?” 😂
