Being short on luck isn’t the same as being short on effort

“Fighting the good fight” can feel like sweeping leaves in the wind. It just doesn’t feel like there is progress made despite our best efforts. The worst part is when we don’t see any improvements, even slight incremental ones, we can begin to believe there is something wrong with us. Which is unlikely to be true. Sure, there might be more things you can do, and you can change tactics but if you are in the space of creating change you are looking for those opportunities to do so. The world is a difficult, complex space to operate in, your effort doesn’t have to be always the thing in question.
