In almost everything we do, we must build our endurance.
You don’t run a marathon overnight.
You don’t write a book in a day.
It’s a slow, tedious process. You won’t notice the results every day, but over time you’ll build a routine…and inevitably, something will knock it down from time to time.
Whether due to a vacation, hard times, or a lack of motivation, there will be times when you lose your endurance. Your shoes will collect dust, your manuscript will go untouched, and you won’t meet your goals.
During these moments, don’t try to run a marathon. Don’t even think about it. Instead, put on your running shoes and go for a walk. Instead of aiming for 1,000 words, try to write a hundred. Don’t write a long blog post; write a short one.
Rebuild your endurance, slowly. One step at a time.
