Learning to trust the process, living in your zone of genius, and tuck jumps

Happy Monday,

Getting good at anything difficult takes time.

You can try to speed up the process. You can learn from others’ mistakes. You can look for hacks that will get you where you want to go in less time. But in the end, there’s no substitute for learning from your own experience, and most shortcuts will make the process take even longer.

There’s also no escaping plateaus. No matter your goal, plateaus are a built-in part of the process. Progress happens in short spurts of growth followed by long periods of plateaus. Learn to expect these and don’t fight them.

Often, just when you think you’re finally making progress, you realize once again just how far you have to go.

This happened to me just the other day in my martial arts training. Just as I thought I was finally making some headway, I got humbled once again, realizing just how far I have to go before I can claim even a basic level of competency.

All of this is part of the process. Learn to trust it. Don’t rush things. The time will pass anyway.

Instead, try and settle into the journey. Know that you’re in this for the long haul. Trust that all your hard work will come together when the time is right.

And keep going.

“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
