You’ve got a goal that you’re working towards. This is a longterm goal and will not be easy to accomplish. Many say you can’t do it, and you even doubt it yourself. You see how long the road is ahead and wonder if the effort you put forward will even be worth it.
Seeing your end goal is like seeing the top of a mountain on a clear day. You’re amazed by the sheer beauty of the visible peak. Before you even begin, you only see how much work there still is to be done. You focus on the whole journey ahead instead of looking at it as 10,000 separate steps.
You must forget how much is still yet to be done and focus on the steps you are currently taking. After all, if you trip when you’re looking up instead of in front of you, you might just hurt yourself.
“by the end of the day, I want things in my life to be a tiny bit better than they were this morning.” -Jordan Peterson (pg.96)
From Rule#4: Compare yourself to who you were yesterday, not to who someone else is today
