If you do not devote a minimum of an hour a day toward your personal improvement then does that mean you are not worth improving?

Giving time toward worthy goals is what humans do to expand themselves, to stretch themselves beyond their current state.

Without said giving of time then we are stuck and not moving forward.

Think of when you went to school and about how much you learned each day.  How much effort you put into it and how much you got out of it.  Even when the specific subject had not immediate return, later in life it became valuable and helped you to see beyond and helped you to over come learning deficits.

English is like that kind of subject.  The returns may not be manifest until years later but as an adult our appreciation for that subject and many others can grow immensely.

Likewise those foundations taught in elementary, middle and high school; even college, are built upon and are strong foundations that we continue to build on throughout our life.

Writing is like that.  Improvement and practice comes with more study and practice yields a consistently better outcome.

Pushing through plateaus help us to over come the inertia or the tide pools of no current until we find new currents of learning and pools of thought that we had not experienced before.

Every day we paddle and stroke and gain momentum.   Some days more than others.

Keep working towards your goals and by the way, send some of your writing to me and let me help in any way that I can so we may improve together.
