      💯 Adding this to my daily reminder

      You’re committed to the thing as long as you don’t quit. All you have to do is continue.

      Stick with it and create a streak. You won’t want to break that streak and you’ll be amazed at the progress you’ve made and the desire to continue.

      Brief but potent message applied to many aspects of existence!

      “As long as you imagine that the outside world will one day deliver to you the external rewards you need to feel happy, you will always perceive your survival as exhausting and perceive your life as a long slog to nowhere.”

      Even if you’re frustrated with what you’re doing and not making any linear progress, if you’re still thinking about it—still paying attention—it’s probably worthwhile. Many things worth doing don’t have quick feedback loops, and if you can divorce yourself from the need for instant validation it’ll be easier to stick with it.
