Many trees shed their leaves in autumn. This means setting aside time for raking; a cause of annoyance for some.
But there is satisfaction in clearing the yard – it’s cathartic. The grass is clear of debris leaving the garden looking pretty again.
As the week’s pass, leaves fall at an accelerated rate. Regular raking continues but it’s difficult to make headway, with freshly fallen leaves quickly replacing their recently cleared brethren. There is no sense of accomplishment.
Grind – this phase is temporary.
Whether clearing the leaves or chipping away at your goals, progress is not always clear-cut. There is the belief that, change must be tangible and easy to observe, but this isn’t always the case.
Long-term progress is not linear.
Practice perseverance and patience when progress becomes unclear. And just as trees survive the harsher winter months by shedding their leaves, you too will become more resilient.
