I used to be the type of person who would beat myself up at the end of every day for not accomplishing enough. My to-do list was huge, and it would seem like I barely made a dent in it.
Finally, another coach pulled me aside and told me to stop being so hard on myself. She said that she keeps a progress journal of everything she’s done during the day (big or small) that support her goals.
She went on to say how looking back at the pages and pages of “wins” in her journal helps her get out of her funk when she starts to lose her motivation.
I already keep a gratitude journal to see how much I have to be thankful for. It makes perfect sense to keep a progress journal to see all the baby steps I’ve already taken.
Do you feel like you’re moving slower than a sloth? Do you have trouble remembering what you accomplished last week or even yesterday?
Today, I’ve got a free printable for you that will help you keep track of all the little accomplishments that lead you to your big goals.

Write down everything you did during your day that supports the dreams you have for yourself. Maybe you cleaned up the living room for 5 minutes this morning. Maybe you sent an important email right away instead of procrastinating. Maybe you created an outline for your new project.
Also, choose the biggest win from your day; the thing you are most proud of doing. It might be as simple as putting on lipstick so you felt good about yourself every time you walked by a mirror.
What was your biggest win from today?
