First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won’t. Habit is persistence in practice.
– Octavia Butler
To improve at something, consistently put yourself in an uncomfortable place. Start a startup, train for a marathon, or commit to writing every day. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
– Sahil Lavingia
One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.
– Maya Angelou
