Sometimes things seem easy, sometimes they seem super difficult. Content, ideas, business, relationships – everything. The key here is what you do on the off days and times.
The key is to keep showing up. We talk about this all the time. Are you going to be at an A+ level every single day? Of course not but showing up is way better than staying mediocre and not doing shit.
When It’s Rockin’
When things are smooth, keep going. Keep that momentum while you’re flowing. Creativity and ideas come naturally when you’re in a state of flow with momentum on your side. And that’s why you have to take advantage of this time.
Keep it rocking.
When It’s Not Rockin’
When things aren’t smooth, it doesn’t mean you don’t do anything. It just means that you may have to redirect your focus. View it as an opportunity to work on other tasks that you may not have given much attention to. It could be as simple as organizing your desk, writing down goals, or organizing your hard drive.
You can’t be “on” 100% of the time.
When It Feels Right
I'm inspired by my work. I love what I do. But you know what? I wait util things feel right. I wait util I know they're being knocked out of the park because I want to make sure I’m putting my best foot forward.
This keeps me out of my head. I’m not overthinking, I’m flowing. When shit feels good, I’m going to do as much as I can while the iron is hot.
Just Don’t Miss
Look, I’m not going to give you some fabricated, unrealistic look into how I operate. Sometimes things are smooth, sometimes they aren’t. It’s just a fact.
But when it’s hot, don’t let it pass you by. Get it all out, record it, do the extra stuff. Because when it's smooth, it's smooth. Know your spots, know when it feels right, and push on.
