Improving is a journey and all journeys start somewhere and follow a direction to reach a destination. Now, there’s a lot to be said for wandering but sometimes we need an itinerary.
You should probably write this itinerary down somewhere. Create a personal knowledge management system.
To begin a journey you need to know where you are. Define your circle of competence
The best journeys never end but we do need to stop off every now and again to admire the view. Define your goals.
Always be assessing whether you’re moving towards your destination. Define your direction.
