The dominant part of our lives often looks the same when we observe our progress, and most of the time, it can be discouraging to keep performing tasks repeatedly. Specifically, when we have to perform the same task for an extended period of time, which can last over several days, weeks, months, years, and even decades. On the other hand, we get told that something worthwhile or beneficial is on the end of these duties and that these are often positive consequences. An example of these positive consequences is the improvement of one’s health after starting a diet or fitness routine. Subsequently, one has to develop a routine, and we eventually perform the same task over an extended period of time, which might eventually lead us to the results we desire.
Several of us, especially myself, become frustrated or discouraged because of the lack of results or boredom. Honestly, performing the same task repeatedly and especially over an extended period of time can be tedious, habitual, and almost depressing. However, we, especially I, forget how change, growth, and life function in reality and on a metaphysical level. According to Jung, progression in life is not linear and has more similar cyclic patterns, which means that we are moving up a spiral. In other words, when we perform the same task repeatedly, we are essentially moving gradually up the spiral, which means we are making incremental progress.
