Progress means forward movement. It might be slow, and it might be circular at times, but it means I’m getting somewhere. It doesn’t look perfect. I’m not on a timeline.
Essentially, this is about the routine you create to get yourself ready to work. Ready to create; ready to sit down and get things done. Yours doesn’t need to look like mine, but making your own may be worth the effort, especially if it helps you achieve your goals and get more done.
