PROGRESSION: The Wednesday Wordnoun


the process of developing or moving gradually towards a more advanced state.
a succession; a series.


“forward walk”
late Middle English: from Old French, from Latin progressio(n- ), from the verb progredi (see progress).

PROGRESS – late Middle English (as a noun): from Latin progressus ‘an advance’, from the verb progredi, from pro- ‘forward’ + gradi ‘to walk’. 


  1. What does the phrase progress not perfection mean to you?
  2. In our 100 Ways To Stay Motivated series, the first course is on Potential, and the first training in that course is work to your potential, not your quota.  The exercise that goes w/ that is to write down what your potential is and compare it to a current “quota” in your life.  The question I would have for you is HOW are you progressing TOWARDS your true potential?
  3. NOTES:
    the past is for psychos / insane 1847, from psychopathy on model of German psychopatisch, from Greek psykhē “mind” (see psyche) + pathos “suffering” (from PIE root *kwent(h)- “to suffer”). Insane from in- “not” (see in- (1)) + sanus “well, healthy, sane”

Remember what Grant Cardone said, “the rearview mirror is smaller than the windshield for a reason.”  Keep your focus on progress and toward the future!  Use the past for data, don’t let the past use you.

Be in the future and look for the next thing.  You will be far better off if you are one step ahead then playing catch up and getting passed up because you’re stuck in a previous moment.

PRACTICAL: Think of one moment you always focus on from your past. Write down three ways of how you can get yourself out of the past or present and into the future.

Put these ways into practice today…  And have a great week!
