In working on our personal growth ideas, programs, plans, and goals, it is only natural to want to reach the end-game, the date, the point at which we get the checkmate, the day we make the breakthrough we’re aiming for, taking the concluding steps on our self-help journey.

And although we can reach a point where we have achieved our major goals, it won’t be done quickly or easily if the goals are substantial.

Seth Godin reminds us that “the moment of maximum leverage” in any significant project results from a steady, ongoing effort.

In his blog, Godin writes:

“We wait for this. For the day when participating will truly pay off, for the mechanical advantage that gives us the most impact for our effort.”

But he cautions: “It’s a myth”

“Maximum leverage is the result of commitment, of daily persistence, of gradual and insane, and apparently useless effort over time.”

Personal improvement is a process, a marathon, but without the finality of reaching an absolute finish line.
