Everyday progress

Slow, steady, incremental progress doesn’t make the headlines. Yet it does make life profoundly better.

Millions upon millions of people, for example, quietly and reliably make their mortgage payments each month. Over time, with no fanfare, this ends up building a massive amount of collective wealth in the hands of individuals.

Although heroic efforts do occasionally play a role, life advances mostly because of slow, everyday progress. It’s the kind of progress you can make right now, and again in the next moment, the next day, month after month, year upon year.

Though it may not seem like much that you can make a small positive effort, over time those efforts add up. Over time, those things that just take a moment here and a moment there, have a major impact on your life.

Stay constantly connected to your values, your goals, your dreams, all you love and care about, as you go through each new day. Be ever willing to support it all with even the most seemingly insignificant actions.

Over time, your everyday efforts will change your world. Live with love and a positive perspective, and those changes will be for the better.

— Ralph Marston
