Remember the old saying about “the best laid plans of mice and men”? It’s important to keep in mind because life often has a way of intruding on our carefully crafted work schedules and workout routines. While it’s easy to feel down ourselves in these situations for not accomplishing everything we hope to, it’s important to take a gradual approach to personal progress that allows us to feel good by taking small but important steps.
In this episode, Kelly discusses how to pick yourself up after stumbling, find solace in the little steps you take, and why you should take a hard look at the reasons you’ve set certain goals.
