|I don't think progress is always a good thing. Instead, it
can be obstacles if we cannot deal well with it.
Sometimes, progress may keep people from learning from others. If we take
too much pride in our progress, being too satisfied with it, we may stop improving. The
thought of self-important may evokes, and thus keep us from
being modest. People may begin to contempt the other people, not willing to
listen to the ideas of others, and result in stay in the same position
until they realize the problem. As we all know, China was once the leading
country in the world in history, many nations admired the advanced
technique in China at those days. So the kings took great pride in it, and
became to be so self important that they decided to close the door to communicate
with other countries during Qing Dynasty. Then we lost the opportunity to learn from others and we are left behind now.

may be isolated. This happens most in the working environment. Progress
will bring advantages such as position-promoted or salary-raised, this may
caused trouble if the workmates envy you. That will be too bad.

people around us, to be modest, and to be alert with the potential plot
