I believe there is power in commitment, and that when we take small steady steps it’s way more effective than taking one big leap and then waiting for days or weeks to take the next.
Give yourself permission to take action before you feel ready, so you can avoid falling into the trap of perpetually “getting ready.”
Consistent daily action yields results.
I found this story inspirational. It describes how Jerry Seinfeld started in comedy as recalled by interviewer Brad Isaac.
Jerry explained the way to be a better comic was to create better jokes. The way to create better jokes was to write every day. But his advice was better than that! He had a gem of a leverage technique he used on himself, and you can use it to motivate yourself—even when you don’t feel like it! He revealed a unique calendar system he used to pressure himself to write. Here’s how it works.
Brad Isaac goes on to share…
He said to get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step was to get a big red magic marker.
He said for each day that I do my task of writing, I get to put a big red X over that day.
After a few days, you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it, and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is not to break the chain!
Don’t break the chain, he said again for emphasis.
Jerry’s experience is a powerful testimony of amazing results generated by a commitment to consistency.
