The secret to success in any activity lies in consistency. Specifically, the consistency of doing small activities on a daily basis. Progress will be slow at first, but over time, you will see results that would not have been believed possible.
Where do you begin? Pick an activity that can make a powerful change in your professional or personal life. Make the activity as “laughably simple” as possible; so easy that you’d be crazy not to do it. Then, document your streak every day and join a community of streakers. With time, you will be amazed by the changes in your life.
