It Doesn’t Matter Until It Does.

That’s just how life works works.

  • It looks like no one is listening until someone listening raises their hand and gets inspired to do something shockingly amazing.
  • It seems like none of your hard work is making any difference until the results are all around you and you’ve crossed the finish line.
  • It sounds like everyone is against you until you stop to notice that those around you have issues of their own they’re fighting through.

The difference between failure and success comes down to resilience and time.

If you’re tough enough for long enough you can accomplish whatever goal you can think up.

It’s easy to get lulled into thinking that you can get started on doing something amazing any other day but today.

It’s easy to think that tomorrow will be a better option rather than right now.

But like a lot of things in life, “bad” doesn’t always seem all that bad until you’re sitting in it knee deep.

Then you’re not just “in” a bad place. You’re “stuck” in a bad place.

And all because you made the mistake of waiting too long to execute a decisive course of action.

Instead of managing the details you waited too long — and now the details are huge problems.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

If you manage what matters, before it matter,s you’re well on your way to long-term success.

Think through everything that makes your future as bright as you want it to be.

Think about who and what and when things need to happen for you to end up where you want to be.

What matters most?

What are you going to do about it?
