2 Ways to Get Back on Track
Updated: Feb 6, 2020
There is no such thing as a slump. If you are going through a rough spell, marred by failure, here are the two possible scenarios:
You simply aren't very good...yet
The law of averages isn't working in your favor.
For both scenarios, the solution is the same:
Keep showing up.
Keep putting in the work required to get better every day.
The difference is found in the type of work you are doing. In both scenarios, the learning and improving never ends. It's a never ending staircase to the top. We've never arrived; we are always becoming.
If you aren't very good, don't treat that as a fixed condition. You have the power to get better. Your methods of doing so might need to improve. The work required might not be the work you are currently doing. If you practice doing something poorly for 10,000 hours, you will be an expert at producing substandard results. Continuously re-evaluate your process. Improve your methods, work persistently, and your outcomes will improve.
If the law of averages isn't working in your favor, it's only a matter of time before things turn around, so long as you continue to do the things that got you there in the first place. Persevere through the pain of failure, and keep your eyes focused on what is important.
