I’ll admit it. I’m addicted to making progress.
If I’ve got a goal in my head, I have a deep down need to feel as if I’m getting closer to that goal. I hate–HATE–going backward.
Yet, I know that going backward is sometimes the route I must take to get to my goal.
Every change, driving change or not, is all forward motion.
That doesn’t make it any easier to tolerate the times when we’re going backward, but at least I can comfort myself in the normalcy of my condition.
So, when you’re going backward, keep telling yourself it is temporary, keep driving change, keep claiming wins and someday you’ll be going forward again.
