Just a little bit every day...
Well, in that case you probably remember every single meal you ever had before. Right?
Well, of course you didn't. I mean -- who would. But, what would your teeth look like if you didn't brush your teeth every day?
I have a tendency to want to over do things. You know -- if I want to start something new, like go to the gym - or make a certain number of phone calls. I'm like -- "Ok, I'm going to make 200 phone calls today!"
Well, there's a lot of things wrong with that. But, think about it -- if you make 5 more phone calls a day, that's 25 more phone calls a week, that's 100 more phone calls a month, that's 1,200 more phone calls a year.
5 phone calls ads up.
Think of it as the positive version of the Starbucks effect. You ever find yourself wanting to save a little money -- stop Starbucks. 5 dollars a day, times 5... that's 100 bucks a month. I mean, that's legit. 1,200 on coffee drinks? That's a down payment on a car (granted, probably a used, or sub-par car -- but I think you see where my head is at)
So, besides being overwhelmed. What little thing can you do every day that will add up?
You don't build a wall. You put one brick on top of another. So, what kind of bricks you building with? What can you do 10 minutes a day that will add up?
