Have you ever felt like you’re not getting enough done during the day? Or maybe you feel like you’re not doing a good job with the tasks you have to complete.
Sometimes, it can be hard to know if we’re doing a good job or not. Every day is different. That’s why it’s important that you take a moment to reflect on the day. One way to do this is by tracking your daily wins.
What are daily wins?
Daily wins are the little things you accomplish throughout the day that make you feel good. They can be big or small, but they all add up to make you feel like you’ve had a productive day.
An example of this could be if you finished a homework assignment, or if you learned something new at class today. These are all examples of daily wins. By tracking them, you can see what you’re doing well and what you need to work on.
How can I assess my daily wins?
Firstly, you need to get into the routine of doing it. Set aside a specific time each day to reflect on your day. Grab your planner and start by writing some of your daily wins. When reflecting on your day, try not to only focus on the big wins. Instead, give yourself credit for the small wins too. Don’t worry if they’re things like “Today I made my bed” or “Today I did my laundry.” Those are still wins!
It’s also important to write down any challenges you faced during the day. Maybe you struggled with a math problem or had a hard time getting feedback from your tutor. By writing down these challenges, you can see what you need to work on to overcome them in the future.
After you’ve done all of these steps, ask yourself:
- How do you I after all of this?
- Do I feel like I accomplished a lot?
- What things did I wish I could have done better?
Use this reflection time to think about how you can improve in the future.
Tracking your daily wins may seem like a small thing, but it can make a big difference in how you feel about your day. By focusing on the positive things you accomplished, you can boost your confidence and motivation.
