When you look at the habits of anyone who is world class, the one thing that is consistent with every single one of them is that they showed up for work on their “thing” almost every day for a very long period of time.
Some of them don’t believe they are good enough.
Some of them aren’t naturally gifted at what they do.
Yet, the simple process of taking consistent action over a long period of time is what leads to their success.
I think about all of the things I want to do or wish I would have done, and for so many of those things if I would have just stuck with it, or started even–for just a small amount of time each day–I may have ended up world class.
That stings and it motivates.
