"Small wins do not combine in a neat, serial, linear form with each step being a demonstrable step closer to some predetermined goal." #readingToday
"It is important to realize that the next solvable problem seldom coincides with the next "logical" step as judged by a detached observer. Small wins do not combine in a neat, serial, linear form with each step being a demonstrable step closer to some predetermined goal. More common is the circumstance where small wins are scattered and cohere only in the sense that they move in the same general direction … A series of small wins can be gathered into a retrospective summary that imputes a consistent line of development, but this post-hoc construction should not be mistaken for orderly implementation."
