The surface area of what you don't know gets bigger and bigger the more you learn. The amount of things you'll realize you don't know grows exponentially while your knowledge grows linearly.

In addition to a list of accomplishments, which is a great idea for representing how far you've come, make a list of things that are utterly baffling to you today and see if you can knock any of those off the list in the months or years to come.

Something that seems downright dizzying today you might learn and think is no big deal later on, but your past self would surely be impressed with what your future self can do.
