Get Your Reps In

by Tom Swift

In writing, in lifting, in life, there is a tension: to do enough.

Progress is most easily achieved in small daily doses of moderate to low intensity.

You must push yourself. A little. Not too far.

You can’t stay comfortable. But you can get so uncomfortable that you don’t pick up the pen, the bar, the laundry bin, the next day.

You have to see change. Yet not be focused on results.

You must create something, achieve something. Still, focus on the act rather than the product.

It’s as easy as that. And as hard.
