The compound effect

It's the anticipation that kills. The only ailment is doing the work on a consistent basis.

It’s the anticipation that kills. The only way to stem the sudden arrival of fear is to do the work consistently so there are no surprises.

Hard work is nonmiraculous. It’s the transformation from turning ambition into practice that makes the man. 

Experience and sticktuitiveness strengthen the bones in the goose. 

To wake up and do it again seems like insanity. And it is. But in doing so we reap the benefits of discipline and allow the compound effect to take over. 

We are nothing without pushing through our habits. Never frantic, always dedicated and meticulous — it is in the effort that we feel free to still the body and the emotions and let the subconscious take over.

Go toward the fear, and wear it out.
