Did you have a good week this week?
From my experience of asking people this many thousands of times over the years, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll have said “No”.
Or “not really”.
That’s what the vast majority of people have replied with to me.
Which I get.
Life is busy.
So much to do.
And it rarely, if ever, all gets done.
Easy to finish the day or week thinking about all the things that didn’t get done.
Or didn’t go quite as we’d like.
Is it worth considering…………….
What would have needed to have happened for us to have considered it a “good week”?
Did we have a particular definition?
If not, we’re just left with how we “feel”.
And how we feel will always tell us it wasn’t good.
Our feelings will lean more towards remembering the ‘less than perfect’ stuff.
And immediately forgetting the majority that went as planned.
Moving quickly on to the next thing.
There’s no right or wrong, of course.
But, if having no particular definition of a ‘good week’ usually leads to us feeling we’ve not had one……………..
Or if that definition is, essentially, everything going absolutely perfectly…………
Could we set a definition that sets up up for success?
One that we will achieve the majority of the time and use to build confidence and momentum?
Could a “great week” be all the stars aligning?
And a “good one” being something a bit more likely?
My “good week” is no one dying and getting done the bare minimum that needs to happen for the business to be ok (Sessions, blogs, accountability follow ups, etc).
This happens practically ever week.
A great week takes a little more and happens less often.
I know some would question this definition.
But it sets me up for success.
For feeling happy the vast majority of the time.
Again, no right or wrong.
But if our definition of “a good week” is none existent or is “perfection”………
Might we benefit from questioning that?
