There’s the excitement.
We often get excited. About a project, about a job, about a person. It’s the power of novelty.
There’s the action.
Some excitement is followed by action. We do the work, we show up, we are present.
There’s the habit.
Some actions and behaviours become a habit. We do them consistently, over a period of time, almost unconsciously.
The gap between excitement and habit is broad. And at the same time, what becomes a habit is way past exciting.
But it’s in this gap that you can find the difference between accomplishment and disappointment.
You got to be able to manage it.
