Mid-April 2019 Newsletter

Hello, and a marvelous astounding Mid-April to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. Today's issue is about wanting faster improvement. Why is it taking so long? Enjoy!

How can I improve faster?
 are we there yet? Whether the challenge you're facing is a health problem, a relationship tangle, or a difficulty around finances or your job, it's only human to want it solved as soon as possible. You may feel like you're taking all the right steps, yet you're hardly noticing any clear signs of progress.

When I was a child, impatient to get something done faster than the laws of Nature would allow, my mother would tell me "Patience is a virtue, Nancy". This just made me more impatient! Most projects do need time to develop, or for communication between the involved parties to happen if you're working with a team. About the laws of Nature, sometimes we need to be reminded that we can't speed up a plant's growth by pulling on it.

 quick fix My mother also used to tell me "Haste makes waste", which I have to say didn't help much, for all her good intentions. She may have heard this age-old wisdom from her own mother when she was a child. You're probably familiar with the hoary old saying "Act in haste, repent at leisure", another caution not to rush and make mistakes, which will then take more time to fix.

If you're trying to develop a healthier habit or learn a new skill, this can similarly be frustrating, as you plod along and seem to take a very long time to reach any level of mastery, where you don't feel like you're all thumbs. Remember the old NYC joke about how to get to Carnegie Hall? The answer is "Practice, practice, practice!". If what you are hoping to achieve was simple and straightforward, it wouldn't be such a triumph when you finally get there. Just keep going!

 gratitude quote As you proceed toward your goal, take a moment to look back behind you at what you've accomplished so far, and to congratulate yourself. Often we're so focused on forging ahead and making progress, we can forget how far we've come already. Recall the obstacles you avoided, or maybe ran right into and then recovered. Appreciate that survivor's attitude, seeing yourself as the hero you are.

One of my personal triumphs has been reducing my severe nearsightedness, with the related accomplishment of getting better at connecting with other people. For me the two are similar, as in the past I did not want to reach out visually, or socially. Now I enjoy looking and seeing, noticing in a curious (not desperate) way, and I also enjoy interacting. Every night I write a short note about what happened during the day which I'm grateful for, and my close relationships, plus some visual delight, are usually on that list. As you continue to tackle your problems, please don't forget to count your many blessings.
