Writing a list of what I have done during the year is something I have done for a couple of years now. Indeed, I have shared some of the highlights on those lists in some of my posts here on this blog. Here is a recap of last years.
I have been thinking for a while now that 2016 has not been one of my better years.
It has honestly felt like at times that I haven’t achieved anything or gone anyway, but then I do have a tendency to be hard on myself at times so writing a list of things that I have actually done is a really important way for me to stay positive.
And what is more as the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day either
The truth is that the Italian city of Rome has actually taken over a couple of thousand years to build and evolve.
Building something successful and memorable does take time. Ask many businesses or social media people with million of followers and likes and they will probably tell you that it didn’t just happen overnight.
So you have to be prepared to be in it for the long game and not give up before it comes right. Remain positive until you reach the point at which you can see that work you have put in is finally paying off.
Trouble is, it can be very hard. I know as it is something I have recent experience of.
