People Overestimate

What they can get done in a day.

July 01, 2017

But they underestimate what they can do with a year.

We stress ourselves out, almost daily, trying to check off our to-do lists and getting everything done that needs to get done.

We feel like because we were only able to spend 10 minutes doing something that we actually enjoyed doing, that we aren’t going to be able to get anywhere with our passions or dreams.

But it’s not about how much you got done today, but how much you get done over time, that really matters.

Growing and working just a little bit everyday compounds over time.

When you put your head down and commit to something for an extended period of time, amazing things can happen.

All of a sudden, when you spend an hour a day for a month doing something, it’s almost a full week’s worth of work on that thing. That’s a lot of time to get some incredible things done.

Many people could write a book, or lose 40 pounds, or make an extra $5000, with just an hour a day for several months.

Don’t beat yourself up when you don’t accomplish all of your goals in one day. Big things take time, and big things start small.
