Where are you?
Where do you wanna be? Look at the place you’re sitting right now. Walls, windows, chairs. Depends. Five, ten years down the road, this place could be remembered as your favorite stepping stone. A crucial turning point in your road to greatness.
Going after what you want is by no means easy. Life is short, but nights can be long. Times where you work what seems like twice as many hours as you would in a “normal job.”
But settling into a safe 9-5 never really got anybody anywhere.
Motivation is a tricky thing. A duality to the root.
- There’s motivation the surging feeling: fire-in-the-belly get up and do something!
- There’s also motivation the steady: eyes on the prize and feet on the road.

Years are made of months. Months: weeks. Weeks, days, hours, minutes, ad infinitum. Oftentimes motivation, like time, is made of the little things. Tiny decisions you make, choices towards greatness. A look into the mirror with a, “I haven’t done enough. I’m not who I could be!”
