Good for you.

It's too easy to focus on where you want to end up and to become so disheartened by where you are so as to give up.

At least... It is easy for me. I think it is easy for most people.

To focus on the very fit people or the best athlete. The feats of engineering or mathematics... Whatever it is...

To lose sight of the idea of small steps from where one is now to the eventual goal...

In the anatomy museum there are loads of plastic models. Some of them are very coarse grained... But there is this model of the brainstem / hindbrain... Lots of plastic bits. I feel like an idiot... But spending an awful lot of time with the model... Really focusing on different things... Which structure is superior to which structure... Which structure is lateral to the anterior lateral ventricle again (yeah, for the 9th time because I keep on forgetting)... It's in finding the strength to... Focus on the basics... To really gain mastery over the basics... That got me aceing that anatomy exam. Most people are all about how this and that and the next thing are EASY and they will laugh at you for doing them...

But those are the things that actually work / are most effective.

Most people are too hung up on APPEARING to have mastery to be centred enough to do the things that will actually result in their gaining mastery.

But it is hardest before the results come in...

Congrats on you for joining.

I remember first joining the gym. One of the scariest things I've done in my life...
