Persistence is a Prized Possession
15 years ago, I first heard the expression: ‘Repetition is the mother of all skill’.
And it makes sense.
Anything that is a skill can be learned, just a matter of how long you are willing to focus on it.
Another word for repetition is persistence.
I am fully convinced that the only difference between those that succeed on a high level and those that live an average existence is a matter of persistence.
Persistence is a prized possession.
So, how do you go about applying this?
One thing that has been working well for me is I keep a blank 30 day calendar on the fridge (if you want a copy of a bland one just shoot me an email and I’ll send it over). Each day that I complete my morning routine, I get an ‘x’. My daily goal is to complete my morning routine.
And I set the target of doing this for 90 straight days and seeing where that puts me.
The morning is the foundation. But that’s a different article altogether.
Start with just 5 minutes a day of meditation, reading, visualization, any skill that can help you.
Once that five minutes takes hold, it’ll grow on its own.
