to all of us: the exercises that caused people to increase their progress
dramatically were those that took the pressure off, those that did away

Every day that is wasted by doing nothing that makes your life
better is an absolute waste. If you decide that you would rather
go to the movies, watch TV, or go out with your friends that is a
choice you make not to further your own progress.

relaxation is not to be used as an excuse not to move forward.
Make each day count for you will never, ever get it back, nor can
you really make up for lost time in any effective way.

I was getting frustrated as I felt I was investing a lot of time
and seeing no progress. So, I developed a list and each week,
if I do nothing else, I make sure I complete the items on the list.
Catherine Pulsifer, Busy but No Accomplishments
