There’s something special about the blank page.
And even more important: it’s what’s behind the page.
That’s the promise you made to fill it.
Whether your blank page is a computer terminal, a squat rack, or a sales call, it’s just as big of a promise.
The only trouble is that it’s never like it is in the movies.
There’s no montage.
There’s no theme music.
There’s no audience cheering you on.
It’s just you and your commitment.
It’s just the raw reality of what it takes.
You have to stir up the motivation in yourself.
You have to remind yourself why you’re doing it—because no one else is going to do it for you.
It’s up to you to evaluate and crush your own excuses.
Even though you don’t get any credit, today.
Even though you don’t get any recognition, today.
Even though you don’t get any return on investment, today.
That’s the way the path goes.
Drip. Drip. Drip.
No matter what.
2 Minute Action
What are you avoiding?
I’ve said this before and that’s kind of the point.
It’s not always going to be a new, shiny task or action item that shows up at your desk.
Most of the time, it’s going to be the same, dull, boring task you don’t want to do.
So, start with that.
De-sensitize yourself to the dullness.
Your compounding interest depends on it.
