As you go after the goals you’ve set out for yourself, there will come a time when the excitement has worn off and it feels like you’re not getting anywhere. That’s okay. The key is to push through that.

Boredom sounds like a bad thing, but what it really means is that you’ve turned the steps required to move toward your goal into habits. It’s all routine. Daniel DiPiazza at Entrepreneur suggests you shift your perspective a little:

From now on, I want you to begin viewing boredom not as a sign of stagnation, but as a sign of consistent, steady progress. Success is inevitable, as long as you’re doing the little things that you need to do every single day to succeed. It’s okay to be bored from Point A to Point B. Just don’t stop.

A train starts its journey with a lurch forward as the wheels begin to turn and it’s exciting. Over time, the repetitive motion of the train loses its appeal, but that doesn’t mean it’s not heading where it needs to go. In a way, it’s good to be bored with your goal. Just be sure you recognize what it really means, and don’t stop because of it.
