Recently, I have been contemplating ways to improve my perception of time so that I can make better use of it. I am trying to resist doing too much reading about the subject, because it is very important not to let myself whittle away my time reading instead of doing. I do allow myself to spend a bit of time brainstorming each day, because I find it inspirational to consider my tasks before blindly jumping in.
The other day, a fascinating notion came to me during one of these brainstorming sessions. It came in the form of a mathematical expression:
[tex]great\: accomplishments=\int (slow\: but\; steady\: progress)dt[/tex] Essentially, this means that great accomplishments can result from the sum (integral) over time (the variable of integration) of a whole lot of slow but steady progress (the integrand).
I am inspired by the idea that continual progress over time will bring me to where I want to be.. to where I can really truly accomplish great things. Intellectually, I have known this idea for awhile, but I am still getting used to putting it into practice. This reminds me of a quote I like a lot:
Practice Makes Progress.
So now, it is time to get to the practice of making progress, and progressing with the practice I do!
