Being between things is tough. There’s a bright future ahead! You can picture it, just out of reach in the near distance.
But there’s a muddied present in front of you. Things are messy and take longer than you think.
You experience setbacks as you proceed toward the goal. What can you do?
You could downsize the goal, telling yourself that thing you’d hoped for wasn’t really what you wanted.
You could accept less than you dreamed of, in other words. But why would you do that?
Chances are, there’s only one real option: keep working away. Tick-tock. Check off the tasks one at a time.
Two steps forward, one step back.
