Why Should You Show Up Every Day?

Because if you do, you’ll be more creative, you’ll make more money, you’ll improve at your craft, and you’ll build an audience. And gosh-darnit, people will like you!

I’m completely serious.

You may never write a NYT Best Seller or have a billion dollar exit. But showing up every day to do your best work will absolutely leave you better off.

Diligence is the single most important component to creativity and building a business.

Just ask these clever guys:

Quantity produces quality. If you only write a few things, you’re doomed.” – Ray Bradbury, hard-working writer

“The keys to success are patience, persistence, and obsessive attention to detail.” – Jeff Bezos, hard-working entrepreneur

“Inspiration is for amateurs; the rest of us just show up and get to work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself.” – Chuck Close, hard-working painter

Do you see why diligence is more important than money, talent, relationships, audience, tools, or anything else?

It’s through your diligence (your persistence) that you build those assets.

Showing up every day is how you go about making money, developing your skills, building relationships, growing your audience, and mastering your tools.

Showing up every day means you have passion and focus. Why else would you do what you’re doing?

(Of course, there’s more to it than just showing up. You’ve got to be intentional about how you’re spending your time. (Work smarter, not harder.) But that’s a topic for we’ll get to later.)

Isn’t it silly to think that as creative and entrepreneurial folks we should live without routine, discipline, or accountability?

Showing up every day is the best thing you can do for your business, your creativity, and your platform.

Give your ideas and your goals a fighting chance.
