Have you ever gardened? If so, you remember the smell of the dirt, the sun warming your shoulders, and the tickle of tiny seeds you sprinkled in the dirt.
How long did you water those embryonic plants before they poked their little heads above the soil’s surface? Two days? Two weeks? Two months?
So why is it we sometimes expect that if we set a goal, we already expect to see progress in two days?
(OK, well, maybe you are more patient than most. But many people give up on their goals within just days of the “tiny seed” planting.)
