The myth of radical change and overnight success is pervasive in our culture. Any quest for rapid growth contradicts every stabilizing force in our lives. Remember, the natural tendency of life is to find stability.

In order for change to last, we must work with the fundamental forces in our lives, not against them. Thus, the best way to achieve a new level of equilibrium is not with radical change, but through small wins each day. - James Clear
