There is an old saying that I think of often, but I’m not sure where it comes from: If you do what everyone else is doing, you shouldn’t be surprised to get the same results everyone else is getting.
This is part of the reason I write a bit every day.
What starts small compounds into something more. The longer you play the long game, the easier it is to play and the greater the rewards. The longer you play the short game the harder it becomes to change and the bigger the bill when you do change.
It’s added up to around 300k words published this year when I count the books I’ve released.
What long game are you playing? What action are you taking day in day out?
