Some people (including myself at times) continue to pursue a path that isn’t really yielding the desired results. Why this may seem illogical, it can seem like an “easy” as the path of least resistance.
So if you feel like you’re not making the progress that you want, take a babystep out of your comfort zone and so something different. Consider this a series of of tiny experiments. Start with a goal that is low risk and enjoy the ride.
