Keep going

When on the journey there are a lot of signals that we get that tell us of our progress, the strain we are under and the progress we are making.  And it is important for us to build up a way of thinking about each of the signals, whether they be positive or negative.  For example, when boredom sets in because we have been working on a project or a goal for a long time, we might think about quitting when we need to be thinking about how to stay the course.  For big hard problems, we need to develop skills that enable us to work strenuously toward challenges, maintaining effort and interest over time despite, adversity, and plateaus.  The key is knowing that we can train ourselves to work through these moments and challenges, we just have to be willing to put in the time that will give us the skills to be adaptive and resilient.  So, lets’ stay the course and keep working it – it is after all what the THPL journey is about.
