Work Happiness Secret: Track Your Effort, Not Your Accomplishments <–Holy WOW. Yes. I think my mind is blown in such a good way.
This one is from Sarah Von Bargen (of yes and yes)’s business blog.
Tracking effort and not accomplishment is absolutely revolutionary thinking for me. I can see how it can and will help me feel better about my current business work AND how I can apply the same principles should I return to the classroom.

I might have to print this post and frame it.

9 times out of 10 though, that sense of accomplishment gets me out of the overwhelm mindset and I can go on to accomplish other things on my list.
