It probably is. You make progress… then you hit a plateau… and you hang out there for a while, and it starts to feel like nothing’s happening.
But behind the scenes, lots of things are happening.
Especially with the brain. The brain needs time to rewire, to acclimate, to figure things out. It’s “dark”… like winter moving into spring, when things are still alive, they’re just slumbering. Or they’re getting ready to break through in a whole new spurt of growth.
And when your brain is ready, it kicks in, and you’re good to go.
At a whole new level.
It’s like you’re re-born in some ways. And in some ways, you are. You just didn’t realize it, while it was still in the works. But when you DO realize it, it’s like waking up to a different world — sometimes in small ways, sometimes in big ways.
Right now, things are developing. I can feel them. Things are developing at work, and the book I’m working on is coming along well. It’s all taking longer than I expected, but that’s typical. If I didn’t know how long it would take me, when I first started, I would never have started at all.
So, it all unfolds. And I get good ideas as I go along. I get better ideas, based on feedback. Based on the results of my actions. For so long, I was caught up in just thinking things through, rather than getting into the fray and trying things out. You just gotta get out there and try things — that’s for sure.
You never know, till you try things, how they’ll pan out. So try.
And try again.
Always learning, always growing. It never stops.
