For most of our lives, we often perform the same tasks daily or more frequently. Hence, several often feel stagnant, stuck, or bored because they have to perform the same task daily, which often can be perceived as repetitive or boring. On the other hand, if we want to improve our skills, abilities, etc., we must perform tasks frequently and repetitively. On the other hand, deliberate practice is required if we desire to improve our lives and requires delayed gratification. Deliberate practice often refers to a practice that is often executed systematically and intentionally, which is often conducted to improve one’s performance. Additionally, deliberate practice requires a continuous and repetitive practice of behaviour, action, etc.
Due to the repetition, people often end up feeling either confused, lost, bored, or hopeless. On the other hand, Carl Jung observed a ubiquitous pattern among all, especially during periods of development. The ubiquitous pattern Jung observed was that during a developing phase, improvement often emerges gradually and often is a cyclic pattern or a spiral upwards. Hence, the developing phase can often be perceived as an endless circle, but in reality, the individual is gradually moving up the spiral. To conclude, despite returning to the same place, we are moving further up the spiral.
