Progress and patience

Progress and patience go hand in hand. With progress comes patience and with patience comes progress. You can’t have one with out the other.

Substantial progress takes even more patience. It takes place over months, even years of consistent effort. This is why you need to practice patience.  Don’t expect immediate change. Otherwise, you’ll end up disappointed and therefore more likely to quit. Trust the process and over time, be prepared to alter the process if that isn’t working for you.

What works for someone else may not be the best course of action for you. Be patient. If you rush, you won’t be able to judge accurately if it’s working. We often mistake slow progress for no progress.

Diets take time. You don’t see results on the first day but if you stick to the process and don’t cheat, you get results. As your body adapts, you will need to add in exercise to continue getting results at the rate you want. What got you here won’t get you there.

You can make progress all day every day in each area of your life. You can fold your clothes neater, clean more efficiently, be a better friend, you name it. Just ask the question.

What do I need to do to make progress?
