Last Friday we hosted a book launch 📚 (Livro dos Fazedores). This book is a summary of what has been done in the Portuguese entrepreneurial context so far. 📝
Ever since the launch I’ve been contemplating about how we actually do not keep track of our own stories. 🤔 We end up forgetting many of our company’s stories or even personal ones.
See, we do remarkable things during our life. 🙃 We achieve successes. 📈 We face failures. 📉 We cope with what life throws at us.
Too often these milestones 📍 pass by unnoticed, suppressed or end up forgotten in time. But these impactful happenings deserve attention ❗because they are our key leanings.
If we track them, this will help us:
- Get our priorities straight. ⚖️ We’ll see the value of the things that really matter and of those that don’t. 💎
- Give us perspective. 🔭 Sometimes things aren’t as horrible or as wonderful as we might initially think. And sometimes we need to be reminded about how far we have already gone. 💪
- Provoke the feeling of gratitude. 💖 We’ll be thankful for what we have and appreciate those who came with us along the way. 🙏
So, write it down. ✍️ List it. Log it. Videotape it. 📹
Doesn’t matter how you do it, the point is that you do. 😉
