Moving forward and making progress is by definition a positive process.
Improvement, growth, momentum.
They all include going in a forward direction overtime.
Worth noting, a problem can arise here when people insist on always doing more in pursuit of growth.
Often times, doing more and adding complexity can slow progress.
It can create a paralysis-by-analysis situation.
If you are struggling to move in a positive direction, you may need to subtract.
Simplify. Organize. Focus on the basics.
From there, the path forward will be clear.
