Effort can mean giving it 110%.

But, effort can also mean just taking it one day at a time… or, even, one moment at a time if a day is too much.

As Career Transition Counsellor Ryan Bingham once said,

“This is just the beginning. Anyone who ever built an empire, or changed the world sat where you are right now. And, it’s because they sat there that they were able to do it.”

Of course, he was saying that right after he fired people, but the movie reference still counts.

When life feels overwhelming – whether we’re talking about regular overwhelm or catastrophic levels of overwhelm – it’s okay to take it one day at a time.

Even if you’re used to giving it 200% every day.
