Growth takes time and patience, but the payoff in the end is worth it.

I’m always on the lookout for good analogies to explain how training works, especially for less scientifically based training concepts. Recently, a trip to the financial planner lead me to open my first retirement account (yup, I’m that young – or that far behind, depending on how you look at it). After a few months enthusiastically checking my accounts and learning the basics of financial planning, I was struck by the parallels between investing and training and how the basic principles were remarkably similar. This helped me better understand my own investment strategies, and since the principles of investing are widely known, I think comparing the two will help you better comprehend the big picture of your training.
