Measure the action

If you were to make 1,000 sales calls, would you be better at sales than you are today?

You can reasonably say that somewhere in those sales calls you will be able to see what worked and what doesn’t. Perhaps, you make some sales along the way.

And if you were to write one blog post every day, can you say after 2,500 you will be better at writing?

Of course.

The same can be said with miles walked, push-ups, and starting a business.

When you get to the next step then you can evaluate the next iteration. You can decide whether you want to go left or right but either way, you are on the path.

We get too stuck on the end result that we forget what we can actually control and evaluate our actions.
