Slow and steady wins the race. No truer words were ever spoken. It’s easy to jump in to new things full of excitement and energy. The challenge comes when the newness wears off. Real progress takes a lot of time and effort. In today’s instant gratification society that’s not a message that people like to hear.
The recipe for progress is well understood and extremely straight forward: define the end state, identify the path, break it in to reasonable pieces, establish a practical time line for each piece, and do it. Unfortunately, many people spend all of their time looking for a “better recipe” as opposed to simply buckling down and following the recipe. The results are rarely good when one deviates from this proven recipe.
With that in mind:
Are you going to follow the progress recipe this week or look at finding new recipe?
As always, thanks for the time.
