No matter of much work I put in, I never feel productive enough. This is a common occurrence among entrepreneurs I suppose. The feeling creeps on you in the middle of the day when you feel overwhelmed by the amount of work, or during the evening when you are trying to relax. After all, no day in the world ever returns, and we all want to make the best of our time.
How do we fight this lingering emotion? We can accept it, or we can rebel.
Rebelling against this reality is probably counter-productive, because it is beating ourselves up. We can only accept the past to better navigate now, and the day after.
This is why regular introspective work is so important, why writing matters: an individual living in fear has no room for growth. Fear has to be channeled. We have to trust the process, we have to believe the future will be fine if we show up every day. Not doing enough on a given day does not matter, what does is how we increase our momentum one spin at a time. It is this momentum that will ultimately lead to ever higher heights. All it takes is a little push - as frequently as possible.
