These Are The Days That Count
It’s currently 7:00am on a Saturday, in exactly half an hour I’m leaving to go to the Horse Races (Exciting, I know!!)
I’m sitting at my desk, all dressed up and ready to go.
But there’s something I have to do. It’s a new day and therefore I need to write a new post.
I considered skipping it today but the guilt ran over me. I have to practice what I preach.
A lot of people would have taken today off but not us.
They would have used the races as an excuse to not write today. “Oh it’s okay, I can skip one day”. Well no I can’t because no one else cares that I’m going to the races and everyone else is going to wake up and work just as hard to reach their goals regardless if I do!
These are the days that count!
I’m not doing anything incredible or anything like that but here’s what happens if I don’t post:
- My constant increase in daily blog views will more than likely be lost.
- I miss out on new followers, which has been increasing daily, on all social media platforms.
- I’d show I’m not really dedicated
It’s important to stick to your plan and execute no matter what!
Don’t ever skip something because it’s a little inconvenienced. All I had to do was get up a little earlier to make sure I had a post on my blog for the day.
By skipping one day, you’ll open the gates to making it okay another time until eventually, you’ve stopped completely. You have to keep pushing. There’s no excuses. You have to push on those days where you don’t feel like it or it’s a little hard to stick to your routine.
Stop making excuse.
It takes weeks to build up momentum and a day to lose it all.
I’m not saying you have to write a blog post every single day, or if you’re starting a business that you’re not allowed a day off. Just make sure that day off still includes you doing everything you need to do (haha). Stay up later the night before, get up earlier. Whatever you need to do to get everything done, do it!
Consistency is the key to achieving any goal.
