There’s no rule, you know, that says you have to push shit up a hill for years in order to be successful. Or even for months.
Success is relative of course, and it stands to reason that the longer you keep at it; this process of creating your dream life, the more likely you are to succeed it and to continually better your vision and succeed again.
Most people make it WAY tougher than they need to. I don’t mean you don’t have to work hard to create your dreams ’cause you definitely DO and in fact a good way to fail fast is to assume you can have the dream 2-hour workday doing ONLY what you love before you’ve done all the stuff that comes before that. (I.e. building the foundations!)
Seriously? If you’re spending your time and energy day after day after bloody day doing stuff that just plain SUCKS or you simply wish you weren’t doing? You gotta get a better plan. Not least because you’re unlikely to keep on keeping on if you’re not getting enjoyment out of your work.
And the truth is that ‘getting things done’ aside a lot of the stuff that IS consuming your every fiber is totally unnecessary!
Like comparing yourself and your work to everyone else out there, then adding new things on to your list that you know you will totally never do but yet you spend time researching them, maybe spend money on a course about it so you can learn how to do it, you let it hang over your for days, weeks maybe MONTHS and basically just send a helluva lot of energy to something that YOU never really decided you wanted or needed in the first place.
Ever done that?
How ’bout …
