It’s What You Do That Matters

Dreams are great. Without desire, you’d never go anywhere, do anything, or strive to become something more than yourself.

But here’s the thing – and I don’t want to harp this point too much – without work, dreams are nothing. They’re just wishes that your heart makes. And if you’ve had any experience wishing on stars, you know that you won’t get your wish unless someone puts in the hours.

By all means, dream on, dreamer. Just remember that it doesn’t matter how big, all-encompassing or thorough your dream is if you don’t do anything about it. Because in the end, it’s what you do that matters.

What Have You Done This Year?

So you probably had some interesting, humongous, awesome dreams a month ago. What have you done about them? How much closer are you today than you were yesterday?

It doesn’t matter how small that difference is. If you took a single, tiny tiptoe closer to your dreams, you’re doing it right. Tiptoe a little closer today. And a little closer tomorrow.

It also doesn’t matter if you haven’t taken a single step closer to your dreams. Today can be the day that you finally start walking.

Do Something That Matters

… to you. I don’t care how busy your day is, or how small that “something” is. We all have to start somewhere – just do something.

You’ve only got one life to live. Please, don’t squander it doing something useless and ultimately meaningless. Create 8 bars of new music. Listen to a new band. Listen to your favorite song on repeat – it doesn’t matter what you want to do, only that it matters.

It doesn’t matter how you feel. It’s what you do that matters. Today’s your day. It’s on.

If you have any questions, let me know in the comments. You can always send thoughts, suggestions, and questions to as well 🙂 Thanks for reading!
