They say your twenties are the most difficult, free, confusing, upsetting time of your life. People say have fun, some say save and invest, while others say go where the wind takes you. If you don’t start taking control of your decisions at your own pace, you will feel forced and rigid when doing your work. That will go a long, exhausting way until you become a slave of your own poor choices. Eventually, you wouldn’t be able to rise above your failures because you’re used to being disappointed. Start deciding for yourself. Start making your own independent choices.
You should write a novel because you owe it to your dreams. You owe it to your younger self who still continues to imagine himself when signing books. As we all know, time is running out for all of us. It’s only a matter of time before we wait in our death bed with regrets of the past. As of the moment, you are creating history. You don’t want to look back and realize that you haven’t done anything in your life worth remembering. You don’t want to sit on your front porch admiring children for their youth. Don’t be like most people who only dream but don’t have the guts to turn it into action.
Productivity should not be a one-time occasion. It shouldn’t have to feel like a miracle when you get a lot of things done. You shouldn’t choose which days to be productive. You should actualize your goals with discipline and consistency to be productive every day — that’s the ultimate goal for a successful person. Focus and determination must be running in your blood, fueling your drive to wake up every day with purpose. Your night-time routine should include planning and preparing yourself for tomorrow — another day of hustling and grinding. Successful people don’t see the journey as a long, painstaking process. They see it as momentary battles to be won and conquered one day at a time.
