Invest in good process

“The process bears the fruit” — Sir James Dyson

Rupi Kaur published her poetry on Tumblr and eventually Instagram for two years before self-publishing Milk & Honey in 2014. 

Beeple produced a picture every day for fourteen years before selling his “Everyday — The First 5000 Days” non-fungible token (NFT) for $69 million dollars. 

Arnold Schwarzenegger consistently lifted weights for eight years before winning the coveted title of Mr. Olympia in 1970. 

Success — in the many forms we tend to define it — is often tied to a moment in time. In reality, it’s often process and the kind of mindset required to keep oneself consistently committed to it that bears the fruit. 

Commit to a process — a regular practice. Fall in love with it. 

It’s a winning proposition that pays dividends daily as long as you’re committed to learning from it. And whatever additional “success” comes of it is just a bonus.
