“Be satisfied with success in even the smallest matter, and think that even such a result is no trifle.” – Marcus Aurelius
Consistency beats brilliance
I love playing long passes. Those who say “This guy was an overnight success” or “He purely had so much luck” lack to understand the incredible power of cosistency. The little things you do on a daily basis will add up and create something larger and gain not only the momentum but the speed and the power that magically creates so-called “overnight successes.”
These 15-mins activities on your writings will add up and can create entire novels. These 1-hour workouts that you do regularly will re-shape your physical conditions.
These 30-mins calls with your significant other that you have each and every day can create a stronger bond and sense of togetherness.
People will only get rewareded in public when the success looks so obvious. But “success” is the outcome. Consistency is the cornerstone of the process you need to go through. That’s why they say “you need to love what you do.”
Play the long passes.
