I've been trying to practice what I call "The Art of Steady Progress" for quite some time.
And it's only been in the last year that I've felt that I finally get it.
It used to be that I'd have a huge goal and think that all I needed to do was set up projects and tasks related to that goal and I'd eventually get there.

The idea behind the Art of Steady Progress is that you take each day as it's own unit. No big goals like 40 pounds to think about.
Those goals are good to set but not to think about daily.
Because... if you do... it's like climbing a mountain every single day.
With the Art of Steady Progress, the only thing you have to worry about is how you're gonna think, feel, and act TODAY.
Here's what you do in a nutshell...
In part 2 and beyond of this series, I get into each of these bullet points and provide more detail and examples because...

With love & joy,
