Plans increase success. Is there something you’ve been meaning to do, but haven’t yet done? I vow to do this. I swear I’ll do that. I’m going to do this. Vowing isn’t the answer. Vivid, concrete plans are. Visualize, in a concrete way, how you’re going to carry it out.
Sometimes when we learn something new, progress happens slowly and quietly in the background. Sometimes we hit learning plateaus. Back in college, I remember getting really frustrated with my learning progress. Sometimes my learning was fast and furious. I was on fire. Other times, it felt like learning was very painful and slow.
