Daily habits are a means to an end.
They help keep our skills sharp and stay sharp.
When you do something daily, you take away ‘I used to do X’ because there’s no ‘used to’ left, just ‘I do X’.
We all at some point wish we could get better now. We wait on doing what we love as if we are expecting a Will Smith genie to pop up out of our coffee mugs and grant us mastery.
10 Minutes is 100% better than 0 minutes. Would 30 minutes be better? Sure. Absolutely. But if you can only give 10 minutes because your time is limited, give 10. Even if you are only putting in 10 minutes on a particular skill, as long as its a focused and deliberate practice, 10 minutes will add up over time. That’s the power of daily habits.
Daily habits make the long term goals happen.
While we are ‘waiting’ for an opportunity to present itself, we are taking initiate and spending a little bit of time each day on what matters most to us.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
