In a lot of instances, I am all for living life "inch by inch" but when it comes to making progress, I want to move "yard by yard".
I am currently subbing for a piano teacher at our studio who is on maternity leave for the month. I had taught a lot of the same kids last year when another of the private teachers went on maternity leave... (Don't drink the water!).. It is AMAZING to me to see how much progress these students have made from one year to the next. It is very neat to jump a year ahead from where they were last year and come in again being blown away by the skills they have gleaned over the past 365 plus days.
As a teacher and a therapist, however, working inch by inch can be very difficult at times. It is probably just as difficult for students/clients/and parents. There are days where "more than average" progress is made, days where "average" progress is made, and days where "less than average" progress is made. It is the culmination of ALL of these days that add up to making leaps and bounds over a long period of time. So, if you are a participant in the learning or therapy process-- hang strong: inches turn into yards and yards turn into HUGE GROWTH!
