Motivational Monday: Forward is Forward

In the past, I let myself get discouraged because I felt like I wasn't making progress. My discouragement could derail me for months at a time, sometimes years at a time.

When I started this year and launched my 18 for 2018 project, I realized that even though I don't cross an item off the list every month, I can work toward the items on my list. For every item on my list, I have tangible steps I can take.

Here is an example:
Remodel Bathroom
Step 1: Save Money for Remodel
Step 2: Lock Down Design for Remodel
Step 3: Find a Contractor and Get a Quote
Step 4: Negotiate Quote
Step 5: Go!

Right now, I am stuck on step 4...

But, I am trying to not allow myself to be discouraged. I have made progress. I have the funds to complete the project. I have the fixtures chosen for the project. I have a contractor. I have the original quote. I am just waiting on some changes I asked him to make to lessen the sting of his quote.

The quote I found on Pinterest for this week perfectly demonstrates the sentiment I am trying to capture this year...Your Speed Doesn't Matter, Forward is Forward - Unknown

Do you get discouraged when it seems you aren't getting things done quick enough? Have you ever been derailed by discouragement? Share your story in the comments.
