Progress Happens While You’re Busy Trying

Chase the process, let the progress creep up on you

Here’s something that us humans do that makes NO sense. I do it, you do it, everyone does it. We spend ages, years, decades, wishing for a change to happen, waiting for a progress moment to magically occur… and we spend little or no time on a process that could make it happen.

These clichés all make the point in different ways:

“Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves” — good small decisions add up

“How to run a marathon? One foot in front of the other” — simplify and focus on the now

“Let the ball do the work” — work smarter, use tools

Identify the issue you most need to work on. Pick a process, stick to it, and forget about the results. They’ll creep up on you, don’t worry.

I want to learn. I try to grow. I’d love to help.
