Success is an inevitable side effect

not to try,
to be successful.

being successful is outwith my control.
to want it and not get it will be painful.

Instead, try
to enjoy doing every day
the things which will lead to my success.

  • Exercise everyday
  • Think everyday
  • Write everyday
  • Build everyday
  • Share everyday
  • Sell everyday
  • Reflect everyday

These are things that are within my control.
and if I do them well,
I will be happy with the doing.

Success is an inevitable side effect of doing the right things
