Surprised by Improvement

While you are on the Meaningful Path, improving your life every day, it’s often hard to notice progress.

I have written almost every day this year.

I journaled, finished my thesis, wrote on this blog and interacted with this community on social media.

When I read some of my writing from one or two years ago I was surprised by how much my craft has improved. It’s something I rarely notice in my daily practice.

My writing is more concise. My thinking is clearer and my understanding of my craft grew.

When you are absorbed in the daily tasks of life you tend not to recognize how much you have improved, especially when you practice your craft daily.

Now that 2019 is coming to a close, take a few hours and reflect on your progress this year.

You may be surprised by what you find.
