People say getting started on something new is the hard part.
For someone who starts a lot of things, I say getting started is actually the easy part.
Doing it over and over again? Now that’s hard.
Getting started and exercising for 5 days, or 30 is easy.
Doing it for 365 days in a row? Now that’s hard.
I have been writing daily for just 6 days. The first 5 were easy. Today, I almost failed and skipped.
But I didn’t.
Someone reminded me that I’m unlikely to beat out a brilliant piece if I write just now.
But I am definitely unlikely to write a brilliant piece without maintaining this consistency.
So here I am, writing about consistency because it’s all I thought about for the past 30 minutes before I sat down to write.
