How do you measure progress?

People aren’t just addicted to fast progress, they’re addicted to steady, measurable progress. If results aren’t “on track” by certain milestones, the entire end objective gets abandoned because progress didn’t happen according to a predetermined timeline. Truth is, people are often more committed to seeing signs of progress at a checkpoint than they are to achieving the actual end objective.

The timeline isn’t the priority. The milestones aren’t the objective. The objective is the priority and the only one that matters.

Change your measuring point from eight weeks or three months to two years. What would two years of discipline give you? That’s the real timeframe that matters. 24 months. A lot can happen in 24 months. A lot needs to happen after that too.

I don’t care where you are by next month. That’s not important. It’s not important where you are in eight weeks or even four months. I care where you are in two years. Then we’ll talk progress.

Embrace the chase. Do the work.
