Save a dollar bill/coin a day and see how much it grows over time.
Write 50 words a day for a book you always wanted to write and see how much the word count grows over time.
Throw 1 un-used belonging a day and see how much clutter is cleared over time.
It’s the power of doing small things daily. Something that we all overlook and don’t think much about.
Doing a bit every day is better than doing a lot in one day.
And it’s much easier to do something when the requirement is really small. Anyone can save a dollar or write 50 words or throw 1 unused item easily. It won’t take that much effort and it’s beneficial in the long term.
As the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
If you have a goal, a dream, an ambition or a project, work on it every day, just a little bit. Show up every day and just do a little bit that will bring you closer to your goals.
It will all build up and compound over time. Anything that we put in effort daily will grow over time.
Saving a dollar bill/coin a day will give us $1095 in 3 years.
Writing 50 words a day will give us 54 750 words which is about 150 pages in 3 years.
Throwing 1 unused belonging a day means throwing away 1095 unused stuff in 3 years.
See how the numbers become really big over time? This is why it’s important to show up daily and put in effort even if it’s just a bit. It’s infinitely better than doing nothing at all.
Treat time as an asset and not a liability. Treat time as an ally and not an enemy. Treat time as a useful tool and not a dangerous piece of equipment.
We’re always saying that we don’t have enough time in a day and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. The most important question to ask ourselves is, “Am I at least doing something that’s related to my goals every day, even if it’s just a tiny bit?”
If the answer is no, then time is going to have a hard time helping you with your goals in the long term. If the answer is yes, then time will do its part to help and you’ll reach your goals eventually.
Time helps those who help themselves.
