W.I.N. Wednesday: Show up. Do the work. Repeat.
Seth Godin wrote a blog post titled, “Hang in There” In the post he wrote, “Is there anything more difficult? Showing up day after day, week after week, sometimes for years, as your movement slowly gains steam, as your organization hits speed bumps, as the news goes from bad to worse...Showing up, it turns out, is the hardest part of making a difference.”
In Good to Great Jim Collins talks about ‘showing up’ with the Flywheel principle, “In building greatness, the process resembles relentlessly pushing a giant, heavy flywheel in one direction, turn upon turn, building momentum until a point of breakthrough and beyond.” When you stop showing up and doing the work, the flywheel (progress and positive change) slows and stops.
Angela Duckworth writes and speaks about the importance of Grit, which is the combination of intense passion and intense perseverance toward a long-term goal that matters to you.
Anders Ericsson (the author of Peak) talks about the importance of thousands of hours of Deliberate Practice to build mastery.
