The Symbiosis of Change and Progress

As with all things in life, achieving goals and ultimately, making your dreams come true is a harmony between change and progress.

Symbiosis – any interdependent or mutually beneficial relationship between two persons, groups, etc.

Change – make or become different.

Progress – forward or onward movement toward a destination.

Not all change = progress


all progress = change.


Consider the goals and the plans you’ve recorded so far. How much of what you want requires a change? 10%? 20%? 80%? Depending on how far of a stretch your goals are from where you are now, you might realize that there are a lot of changes to make over the course of the next year. Keep in mind though, without change, without fear, without risk, you’ll never make any progress.


Determine what you want


Get on it


Get organized

Finally, and most importantly:

Track your progress

Change, however small it may be, can be extremely challenging. Throughout your journey, you will encounter many similar patterns. These include overcoming fear, setting objectives for yourself and diving in to your plan. Don’t let the hurdles in front of you stop you. Incremental change may be your best bet forward.

Considering to do a round the world trip for a year? Start small. Start by obtaining your passport. Do smaller trips to more exotic locations. Rough it for a few weeks. Implement the extreme new lifestyle step-by-step into your current life. Everything in life can be trained for. Consider an athlete’s routine. They aren’t successful simply because they wanted to be. They trained for their success. Their daily routines were built to make them stronger, faster, better.

You too can implement small changes into your life and after awhile, you might start to see a big progress!

“Progress is impossible without change. Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” – George Bernard Shaw
