The cavalry isn’t coming. The quantum leap probably doesn’t exist (pun intended), and likely doesn’t matter to your daily life anyway.
Your progress in any pursuit depends almost solely on the tiny decisions you make about how you either spend or invest your time and energy every day.
So you don’t think it matters much whether you invest an hour to read that book or spend the hour playing video games today? If you can get just 1% better every day in some category of your life, in one year, you will have improved about 3800% in that category through compounding. 1% a day is an approachable goal, even if you are feeling a bit beat down. Invest your time wisely.
