Life isn’t that complicated.

Alexander Krivitskiy

Humans love to complicate things.

I’m convinced it’s because it either A, gives us an excuse to not do something or B, gives us a reason to charge others a lot of money for things.

The other day I was sitting around thinking and I realized all of advice I’d ever need could be distilled down to 2 minutes.

Here it is.

People say: Wow, your writing is really good, you’re making nice money!

It’s because I’ve published a piece every single day for 544 day straight.

People say: wow, you’re looking good, healthy!

It’s because I’ve gotten up at 6:40 to workout every single morning- rain, shine, hot, chilly- for 2 months straight.

People say: wow, you and Lisa have something special!

It’s because my goal is to make my girlfriend laugh every single day, take one thing off her plate and talk/connect before bed.

People say: wow your kids are so well behaved!

It’s because every single day we work on routine, discipline and kindness.

Success may require some luck, but it’s never an accident.

Your life is what you do (or don’t do) every day.

That’s it.
