Change comes about when you take action. Progressive change is when the action is according to the plan you have determined.
What's your goal? Are you convicted that it's a worthy one and your motivation is right for you?
Have a plan of action.
If it's a problem to be solved, you need a plan.
If it's to enhance your quality of life, get a plan.
Even if it's to discover something completely novel and untrodden, I'm pretty certain a plan is still essential.
Plan practical steps to break routines, change ways of thought, learn new ones, form new connections, explore new places...
You'll get there. You only simply have to get started.
