When it gets rough, just keep going.
It might sound silly or obvious, but it’s an incredibly powerful mindset to adopt.
Your focus should be on improving. You don’t have to accomplish anything; you don’t have to finish anything; you just need to make a tiny bit of progress.
If you can, and if you can repeat this regularly, you’ll get far.
So if it ever gets rough, if you ever feel stuck, if you ever lose motivation or burn out, try to take another step. Just one. It just might be enough to shift your mindset and get your momentum flowing. Everything after that will be much easier.
