We get what we invest in.
The time we spend comes back, with interest.
Prof Clay Christensen in his book How Will You Measure Your Life says, I paraphrase: where you spend your time on grows, and where you don’t spend your time on diminishes.
When you invest time on your studies, your chances of passing increases and when you don’t, your chances diminishes.
When you invest time in your relationships, they are likely to be healthy and when you don’t, they are likely to suffer.
If you practice five minutes of piano music every day, you will become a better piano player.
If you spend a little bit more time each day complaining or feeling ashamed, that behavior will become part of you. The words you type, the people you hang with, the media you consume…
The difference between who you are now and who you were five years ago is largely due to how you have spent your time along the way.
The habits we groove become who we are, one minute at a time.
A small thing, repeated, is not a small thing.
[And the same thing is true for brands, organizations and movements.]
