There was an add campaign years ago for a donut chain featuring an exhausted baker getting up in the wee hours to make fresh donuts for his customers. "Time to make the donuts" was the catch phrase. We can all feel his pain - the alarm going off and him trudging off to the donut shop in the dark so when the doors open, there is an array of donuts waiting for his eager customers.
We all have our (metaphorical) donuts. Whether it's that workout before the day gets started, studying for that exam, preparing for that meeting, making that extra phone call.
The temptation is for "good enough" sometimes. Or worse, "I'll skip it today, and do it tomorrow." Imagine how long a donut shop would stay open if they served yesterday's donuts all the time.
The people in your life, whether it's your family, friends, customers, teachers, or yourself, deserve your best. Even on the days when you just feel like dialing it in.
Finding the discipline to get up and do the things that need to be done consistently, even when the desire to NOT do those things is strong is a learned skill. It takes practice. You can do it.
Get up, every day, and make the donuts. Start today. Do it again tomorrow. And the next day. And the day after that. Every day. Consistency and practice breed habits that add up over time.
