When it comes to working for yourself, you see a lot of advice online about work-life balance.

Most of it says you should be working every day to get what you want.

In theory, this would be great, but in reality, it's not always possible.

As humans, we're imperfect with flaws, bad habits, and weaknesses that get in the way.

That's why instead of putting an insane amount of pressure on myself to "crush it" every day, I simply try and make one small step towards each of my goals.

This helps me manage my own expectations, especially on the weekends when I'm a little more distracted.

We tend to forget that over time, a lot of small steps add up to big progress, no matter what we're working towards.
