Comparing inside to outside

When you’re looking from the outside at what someone else is doing and you’re only seeing snippets of progress as time goes on, it can feel like they’re getting things done very efficiently.

This can make you reflect on the progress of whatever it is you’re doing.

This can have a motivational effect but, unfortunately, sometimes the opposite occurs.

Sometimes you can be left with feelings of inadequacy.

However, the way it looks from the outside is rarely what it’s like inside.

Everything worth achieving takes time and effort and comparing your perspective of the inside of what you’re doing isn’t a good comparison to the outside of what someone else is doing.
