If It’s Important, Do It Everyday

One of the most important ideas I’ve ever heard is a quote – it might be based on something Tim Ferriss said, but I can’t find the original.

If you don’t have time, you don’t have priorities.

How do you “find time” to eat? Or sleep? Or shower? Or go to work? You “find time” (or really “make time”) for these things because they are important. They’re priorities, and you’re going to do them everyday (or nearly everyday).

Too many people have things they want to do or know they need to do… but either never do it, or do it so infrequently they might as well never do it.

You want to build a business? Prove it. Make time for it, and put in the hours everyday.

You want to read 50 books this year? Prove it. Make time for it, and read everyday.

You want to learn a second language? Prove it. Make time for it, and practice everyday.

You want to get fit? Prove it. Make time for it, and workout everyday (or maybe every other day, depending on your fitness plan).

You want to be a writer? Prove it. Make time for it, and write everyday.

You want to get into an amazing relationship? Prove it. Make time for it, and do something to improve your dating life everyday.

You want to be a meditator? Prove it. Make time for it, and meditate everyday.

There’s lots of things you could do in a day, and a few really important things you should be doing.

Make the important things a priority. If it’s important, do it everyday.
