We want Progress. Like yesterday.
It’s tempting to be thinking of achieving massive success as soon as possible.
So what does Progress actually look like (realistically)?
In Atomic Habits, James Clear says if you find yourself struggling to build a good habit or breaking a bad habit, it is often because you have not yet crossed the Plateau of Latent Potential. When you finally break through the Plateau of Latent Potential, people will call it overnight success. We tend to see the most dramatic event rather than all the work and efforts that came before that “overnight success.”
