What is the best way to figure out if you are making progress?
What if you are getting increments but know it in your heart that you’re doing the same things you used to do three years back?

Here’s the benchmark I use:
If I’m doing something where my probability of success is high, it means I’m getting super comfortable, and not making progress.

Progress, by itself means, succeeding with low chances of success.

To get to a place of cringing at your content 3 months back.
Or getting effective with rising 10 minutes earlier, every week.
Perhaps forgiving when its hard, because you want to move on.

Of all things, the best thing about progress is you control it. Realising it is another.
