As you pursue your goals, it’s important to take some time, on a regular basis, to reflect on how far you’ve come. It’s easy, for me at least, to get caught up in the work that still needs to be done and to lose sight of how much progress I’ve made toward some of my major life goals, such as finishing a doctorate. Thus, I’ve taken up the habit of taking a long walk on Thursday nights to decompress and think on everything I did for the week so that I don’t get anxious just seeing the mounting deadlines and such ahead of me.
