The Problem with “Just Put In The Time!” — 1 Comment

  1. My initial reaction to the article is yeah this can be disheartening to hear.

    A few days in now though I am mulling over the positive side of this. There are actually so many cases where you are doubting yourself and this is actually the answer, you just need more time. You are often doing all the right things and you just need time for your brain to adapt.

    I can remember when my brain wouldn’t stop translating in my head back to English. I was trying to figure out what to do. The answer was time.

    Same as when reading took forever. Or when listening real time to grammar and decoding it felt impossible. Time was the answer for each.

    So saying put in the time can feel cruel but it can also be a relief. You are doing the right things just keep doing it!
