Are You Faking Progress?

Monday, April 25th, 2011

One of the big traps in life is believing that you’re making progress when there’s no actual evidence of it.

I seem to have this tradition of making a post at the start of each year to muse about what my primary focus for the coming year will be, so I’ll share some thoughts on what I’d like to explore in 2011. 2010 in Review First of all, 2010 was a year of tremendous growth […]
