Continually look for ways to improve. Keep measuring, keep adjusting, take a step back if that’s what’s necessary to move forward. It’s often easy to forget this but people don’t become super talented or skillful at things overnight. It takes a lot of time and dedication.
In a world inundated with advertisements of quick results, many people have fallen into the trap of thinking that excellence can be achieved in just 30 days. How many people take lessons for things only to quit a couple of months later?
A classic example is someone who starts working out and 3 months down the line complains about why they don’t look like the person who’s been working out for years or even decades.
Results take time.
Life can’t be experienced as a montage. You have to go through all of the boring parts in order to see the results you want.
You can record your progress and create a montage to some inspirational song just to mess with people’s heads by making them think it was a quick, fun, and easy process but even to do that, you have to pay your dues just like anyone else who is super skilled at anything or has achieved great results.
