Invisible progress is still progress.
Imagine wrapping a string around a rock and throwing it, wherever it lands is where you want to go. The string guides your journey but at times we don't see progress, we may feel stuck/stagnant. However, motivation and intention is progress. You had the willingness to take a chance and throw that rock, that's progress. You're one step further than you were. Pay attention to the process to discover invisible progress.
