Keep going even when you don’t feel like it, even when you can’t see an end. Even when people persuade you to take it easy and give up, keep learning.
Keep working. Keep going. Keep pushing. Keep striving even when your material is under your standards even when your client drops you due to creative differences.
Even when you don’t think you’re any good. Even when you can’t see any progress, just keep showing up. Grit is what matters most of all.
Showing up anyways regardless of what your thoughts say. Most of the time your thoughts are lying and trying to rationalize away doing work. Keep up the pace.
Keep going. Don’t lose steam. Don’t chillax because your friends aren’t striving as much. Don’t get distracted by things that don’t matter. Listen to podcasts. Watch tutorials. Invest in yourself. Learn hard skills.
Do hard things. Think ahead. Learn personal finance. Learn how to optimize how you think. Get counseling. Get help. Make friends. Don’t practice jealously. Love yourself. Respect yourself. Talk to yourself the way you would a friend.
Keep going even if your brain is dreading doing work. Some is better than none. Some days you’ll face more resistance than others. Plan ahead. Make more friends. Meet people. Stay in contact with people.
Help others. Extend a hand. Do your best work for people you serve. Meet their vision; it’s not about you. Join a band. Make a mess. Embarrass yourself. Try new things. Analyze your thought patterns.
Change course when things are awry. Get in shape. Watch what you eat. Learn how to eat healthily. Treat people the way you want to be treated.
Learn about compound interest.
You can always go back. Take risks and live life. Inspire and help others but don’t get mad when they’re not perfect or aren’t receptive to your help. Focus on yourself without being closed off.
Do things that scare you. Stop being complacent.
