Nothing great ever happens without you putting in the work.
Even winning the lotto takes buying the ticket. Action and effort is what leads to results.
That, however, doesn’t take into account the other most important element: Time.
Like seeds, today’s actions probably won’t grow overnight. It might be weeks, months or even years before your efforts pay off.
That can be super frustrating because as much as you can control the amount of effort you exert, there’s nothing you can do about time except try to enjoy it.
If you could look at November 2019, what could you have started today that you would be grateful for then?
