Progress is such a weird thing. In something like building a wall, where you can see every brick being laid and the wall growing right in front of your eyes, or when you paint a room and you can see 1/4 of the wall being colored almost instantly as you roll the roller across the wall, it give a real sense of accomplishment and pride. It really fun and exciting to see it! But when we look at progress that takes longer to achieve, let's say losing weight, or getting better at a certain skill, or getting stronger and faster, it seems so much different. When we are involved in trying to change something on ourselves, its kind of like watching a pot of water boil, it never seems to change. You sit there looking at yourself or what you are doing and it seems to be EXACTLY the same as it was yesterday. You see nothing different. In these processes, the bricks you are laying are MUCH smaller and the wall you are painting is MUCH bigger. It really is better to just put your blinders on, put your head down and just keep plugging away! Now for most diet/weight loss/eating plans, people will take a picture when they start and then maybe every 30 days. But the game is to not look at them until at least 2 months in or more. For skills, do a skill test (how many HSPU you can do at one time or with how many pads under your head) and then not do a retest for at least 6 weeks. This gives you time to build strength and improve the coordination for the movement. I guess what I'm saying is that anytime you are trying to improve or get better at something, there will be a progression to it. Progress will more than likely be UNSEEN until you reach the end. So instead of getting all impatient and wondering if TODAY is the day everything will change, just keep moving, just keep laying the bricks, just keep painting that wall, and it will happen. Then you can go back and compare the before and after pictures, or compare the test results of your skill and see just how far you have gone! It will happen. Don't expect to see it every day. Expect to work at it everyday!:)
