It is easy for us humans, well for most, to become distracted, tired, bored, disillusioned, etc. with L O N G term projects and it is also easy for us, during the long slogs of the day in, week, out, month in, year out grinding,... to get stuck focusing on the small task or tasks that are on our immediate or priority lists.
And it is usually only when we take a pause to step back and take a macro view of what HAS been achieved,.... that we can get a bigger perspective of just how far we may have come/made it to thus far.
As I say, life is not easy, we all have our own challenges and struggles, BUT, if we are sure of our goals, plans and dreams then we just have to keep moving toward them, even if it is only inching forward at times,....
My Mother gave me decades ago, an invaluable decorative tile with this inscription -
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must,
but don't you quit!!!
