I have a love/hate relationship with the idea that in order to be successful, you just need to show up everyday. While yes, if you want to succeed, you have to be present, but that’s not what makes you successful.
What happens to be left out of that idea is the actual work. That’s why the idea has turned into the mantra “show up and do the work.” But even that mantra isn’t enough to be successful.
There’s two things missing: consistency and focus. In my mind, there’s for things that lead to success: show up, be consistent, be focused, do the work. Show up every day focused and do the work.
