Patience and Urgency.
So damn important.
Don’t set your sights too far ahead so that you fail to realize all of the small wins you have.
Just because you are aiming for something and fall short does not mean that you have failed. It means that you are that much closer to achievement.
I have been working out 4x a week consistently for the past 7 weeks, which is a win to me.
Sometimes I look in to other aspects of my life and realize I haven’t accomplished everything that I would like to, but I am moving forward in different parts of my life and that is perfectly fine.
You can only go so fast, remember to enjoy the process.
Enjoy getting better at one thing at a time, enjoy building up one habit at a time, the rest will follow.
Don’t get too caught up in anything other than the present moment, you’ll regret it later.
All of that being said though, you must work urgently on a daily basis.
Work every day like you will realize all of the results you hope to see at the end of the day, but then know that it is probably going to take twice as long to accomplish as you’d originally thought, according to Hofstadter.
If you are building a house, you need to show up on the construction site every day and work like you need to get it finished by the end of that day.
Work quickly, efficiently, tirelessly to finish building that house on that particular day.
Leave the job site knowing in the back of your head that it will most likely be a few more months before the home is finished, but know that you will return to the site tomorrow with the same energy that it will be finished by the end of the day.
