Do the thing
It's easy to email a new person everyday, to build social capital. It takes 5 minutes.
But you don't do it...because it's also easy to not do it.
It's no big deal to do 1 push up a day. It takes 1 second. But you don't do it, because it's also easy to not do it.
Learning a new skill for 10 minutes a day is actually pretty simple. But you don't do it.
Because it's also easy to not do it....
The question for your growth is not about easy or hard. It's about the intention and conviction to be a certain type of person. A person who does things.
As James Clear says, "Your habits shape your identity, and your identity shapes your habits. It’s a two-way street."
Who will you choose to become?
