Progress is both a noun and a verb. It is our strife and our goal and so it is both a journey and a conceived destination. I say that I have pursued progress because, for me, it has been a moving target. I am changing and so my conception of my destination has changed as well. 

Pursuits of the past

In October of 2009 I got my British Passport and decided that I wanted to travel from Jamaica around the world to write a fictional novel about time travel woven into real life science. My commitment to the cause was sure, but my process was flawed. To begin with, I was not a professional novel writer, my training was in print journalism.

“In twenty weeks my team and I will be launching “CEAC Global Relocation”; a magazine for the current and future expatriates. This is my progress and how I intend to make it.” 

 Instead of travelling to California, Beijing and completing the journey with a stop at CERN I ended up in London with my uncle.  I wrote a journal about my travels in London and what I experienced. It was an amateur’s attempt at greatness and I soon found myself in a day job. I was across the Atlantic permanently, no small feat for a twenty year old. I learnt that progress begins in the mind and extends out through the body into the rest of the world. With commitment great ideas could achieve great things if the process was sound. My process was flawed and ultimately I failed in what I had originally conceived as progress. 

Pursuits of future progress 

As a journalist I have decided that the most logical direction of CEAC Global Ltd is the production of a magazine which promotes the relocation of official shortage area workers to the United Kingdom for work.  My commitment to this conception of progress is as strong now as was that for my original conception of progress five years ago. The differences between my past and future progress are many.
 I wish to highlight my added base of experiences and the soundness of the processes that are and will be taking place in my mind. I believe that with this formula, as I have planned, in twenty weeks my team and I will be launching “CEAC Global Relocation”; a magazine for the current and future expatriates. This is my progress and how I intend to make it. 

Conclusion 

If you take away only one thing from what I have written I hope it is this, your progress begins and ends in your mind. If your will is strong and your process is sound you will achieve in whatever way you conceive.
