1007. Find The Magic And Money In The Monotony

When we study the patterns of successful people, the number one thing that helps them reach their goals is repeating a simple process. When you fall in love with a routine that works for you, that’s when the magic (and money) comes. In this episode, we talk about why it’s so important to resist the urge to give up when things start to feel monotonous. We also talk about what keeps us motivated, focused, and committed to the show up consistently.
