Logic Of The Day: 15.02.2018
Imagine you’re building a sandcastle. You’ve been toiling away at it for hours. After you craft it to stand tall and firm, you add one piece of sand to it. The seemingly insignificant spec of sand applies enough weight to topple the entire castle.
The “sandpile effect” explains how you can work fruitlessly towards mastery for years until one day everything clicks. The “piece of sand” could be an entire book, a revolutionary business idea, or a cure for a disease.
People who quit early don’t understand this. When developing a skill, no time spent is in vain. Success in skill building isn’t linear, meaning you don’t get better at an equal pace each time you practice.
You might feel like you’re getting nowhere, but each minute spent building your skill sets you up for a leap in the future.
Luck exists and it plays a rather large role in our lives. The best you can do is continue to increase the odds of your success.
When everyone else worries about what’ll happen next week, you think about what you can do today to benefit yourself five years from now.
