"The mere formulation of a problem is far more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skills. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination and marks real advances in science." -- Albert Einstein (via David Allen in "Ready For Anything")
Where a lot of self-improvement initiatives seem to falter --
Failure to consolidate the gains.
After any period of self-development -- whether that's in health, productivity, attitude, or a particular skill -- there will be a time when you've got a loose collection of new habits that aren't fully happening all the time.
Inevitably, eventually you get caught up in being busy, or get ill, or whatever, and many of the new gains fall over like a house of cards.
It's worth keeping this in mind when trying to make positive changes. From time to time, you need to consolidate the gains.
Yay! The Basement here in Nashville is one of the venues I've always wanted to do a show in, and tonight, I make my Basement debut!
