If we’re talking long term goals, the reality is slow, consistent, and repetitive.
It’s: what can you do today, and the next, even if it were just for 10 minutes?
What’s the minimum commitment possible so we avoid the burn from stretching ourselves too thin?
The minimum commitment makes sure what needs to be done still gets done, especially when we’re not feeling like it or when we find ourselves short on time.
It’s the sustainable way out of short sighted schemes to get rich or to seek notoriety.
Defining the bare minimum makes the long term goal (whatever it is) possible.
