We mostly move bit by bit while working at anything. The huge leaps are rare.
Whether you’re attempting to act less shyly in public or trying your hand at a new skill like writing, it’s unobvious that you’ll see the immediate picture in many cases.
This can make you question whether you’re really progressing. Is it even worth it? It seems hopeless to go on when the needle doesn’t move.
And yet you need to get through that mud of inner resistance. The faith in your smaller actions gets you through when the glimmer of success is timid or non-existent.
