Do the same thing for a long time and try really hard at it.

Do the same thing for a long time and try really hard at it.

Do how many things? It’s not a big number: one.

It's so simple ... and so difficult.

It’s so simple … and so difficult.

Watching the Fizzle interview where Corbett Barr interviews Brett Kelly and Brett at one point, talking about how he got started said, and you’re not going to want to hear this, “Do the same thing for a long time and try really hard at it.”

I’m going to do two sets of bullet points here. First up is doing one thing:

  1. Do one thing.
  2. For a long time.
  3. Try really hard.

Here’s what often happens:

  1. Do one thing.
  2. For a short time, but it seems like a long time.
  3. Start another thing, but try to keep up with the first thing.
  4. Start yet another thing.
  5. Feel guilty that you’re neglecting the first thing.
  6. Realize the second thing was probably better than the first thing and third thing combined.
  7. Do the third thing for a long time.
  8. Try pretty hard.
  9. Dabble in the second thing a little more and debate if any of them was a good idea at all.
  10. Go back to your day job.

This would never happen to me. I heard these last bullet points from a guy in line at the post office (so it must be true).

I don't like to call them excuses. They're priorities. With a handful of exceptions, we usually have a choice in our actions. They just need to be prioritized.
