Consistency over content
What’s the one thing that is really hard? Really really hard?
The one thing that you can’t fix easily. The one thing you can’t fake.
It’s consistency. It’s perseverance. It takes time.
It’s the discipline that makes you show up day in and day out. It makes you put out work on a regular basis. It’s the virtue of reliability.
It’s the virtue of all virtues because it’s not easily attained. Because only consistent action enables progress.
It enables mastery of anything. It enables leadership.
We respect those with this sort of work ethic because deep inside we know how hard it is to keep up.
We know how hard it is to keep working day after day, week after week, month after month.
Year in, year out.
The hard thing is not to learn the craft. That’s attainable by studying.
The hard work is doing the little bit when you don’t feel like it the most.
The hard thing is to keep at it when you don’t feel like it the most.
And you will not feel like it.
That’s why you have to make it easy for yourself. You must care for yourself deeply, so you can focus on tackling the resistance.
