When I get worn out by life, I like to stop, take a breath, and remind myself that the key isn’t to getting everything done at once. It’s in showing up repeatedly, showing up anyway. Half an hour writing every day gets me farther than occasional marathon sessions ever could.
Fortunately, others before me have realized this. I turn to them for reassurance and encouragement. Today’s encouraging quote:
Dripping water hollows out stone, not through force but through persistence.Ovid
Water can carve stone a drop at a time. It just has to keep drip drip dripping.
In the same way, I can meet my goals. I just have to keep showing up and putting in today’s little bit of effort.
