Do you ever have one of those days when you don’t really accomplish any of the things you set out to accomplish? One of those days when you don’t feel like you really accomplished anything? You know one of those days where you feel like you moved backwards, instead of forward?
What do you do with a day like that? You can let it take and keep you down in the dumps, or you can decide to do something about it, by turning it around and making it count while it is still today.
Here are three things you can do to make every day a productive day, even and especially the days that feel non-productive:
1.) Look for encouragement! Read something encouraging like the Bible, motivational quotes or something special that you’ve saved from a family member or friend. Listen to motivational messages or watch something uplifting on tv or video. Now with some encouragement under your belt, move to step number two.
2.) Share the encouragement! Believe it or not, you are not the only one out there that had this kind of day. Take a few moment to write a note, post a message or make a call and share an encouraging thought with at least three other people. Be intentional and on purpose – make this count.
3.) Realize the encouragement! You went and got some encouragement for yourself and then you shared encouragement with someone else. If you did nothing else today – it has been a good and productive day! Realize and appreciate the opportunity you have been blessed with.
BTW… Just because you think it was an unproductive day does not mean that it was. You often accomplish more than you realize and when you really begin to realize the encouragement, you will also begin to see that you accomplished more than you originally realized! Blessings!
