Focusing on progress is one of the things which is at the core of my approach to coaching, training and management. Here are 5 quotes about progress that I find inspiring:

  1. Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.” ~ Winston Churchill (1874 – 1965)
  2. Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)
  3. Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress.” ~ Nicholas Murray Butler (1862-1947)
  4. Progress, of the best kind, is comparatively slow. Great results cannot be achieved at once; and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk, step by step.” ~ Samuel Smiles (1812-1904)
  5. All progress is experimental.” ~ John Jay Chapman (1862-1933)
