The people who do stuff get stuff done. They put one foot in front of the other.
It’s so obvious that it doesn’t need to be said at all.
Or does it? After all, you dream of writing that book, releasing that album, getting that gallery showing. And you know that it won’t happen unless you get some stuff done.
Working down your Netflix queue doesn’t count, and you know that too.
Buying groceries? That doesn’t count. And neither does making your bed, brushing your teeth, or any number of other necessary, worthwhile activities.
The only thing that counts is doing the stuff. Write a word. Then write the next one. Write a sentence. Then write the next one.
There 365 days in a year. Take 65 days off. That leaves 300 days.
Write (500/1000/2000) words per day and you will get (150,000/300,000/600,000) words by the end of the year. Repeat.
The people who are standing where you want to be have walked that path.
