The Exponential Value of Perseverance

If you want to be good at something and you persevere, the payoff is extraordinary.

On day one you learn something. On day two you learn something, but you still have what you learned on day one. On day three you have what you learned on day three, but you also can combine what you learned on day three with what you learned on day one and you have what you learned on day three combined with what you learned on day two.

That’s just in three days.

Now do that for three years.

And then for a decade. It’s not 3650 days of learning. It’s 3650 times all the other days that were combined together. It’s mind-boggling to think about.

And all you have to do is want to be good at something and keep learning something every day.
