Taking a Look Back

When you're building a skill over time, it's easy to feel like you're not making progress in the moment. That's how incremental skill-building works.

So, what to do to stay motivated? To remind yourself that you're improving?

Try taking a look back.

What did your project look like six months ago? A year ago?

Chances are, you have challenges right now. That's just part of the gig. But, they're different challenges than they were a year ago. The hard parts from a year ago are probably easy now.

And the new challenges you face mean you've leveled up.

When in doubt, look back at how far you've come. Then, get excited for what's coming up next.
