You tell yourself that you are going to do something every day.
Maybe it is to eat healthier. Or exercise.
Or spend time with your friends or family.
Or to write your book or blog.
Yet, keeping those promises is difficult.
In fact, doing something every day is hard.
What does it take to stay the course… every single day?
Every Day Means Every Single Day
What does every day mean to you?
It doesn’t mean, “If you have time” or “When you get around to it.”
Every day means every single day without fail or excuse.
“Every day doesn’t care if you feel like it, or whether you are in the mood.
Every day is determined, ruthless, and tougher than most people.”
Every day means discipline.
It means that you don’t give up. You don’t slack off.
It means you do it even when you don’t feel like it.
Or when you are tired.
You push on.
Every day is what you do today.
Not what you promise to do tomorrow.
Every day is not easy.
Every day is damn hard.
Every Day is not Everyday
Every day is not everyday. It is not common.
Everyday makes you ordinary. Every single day makes you extraordinary.
You are what you do each day.
So, what are you going to do today… and every single day?

Good post, Chris. Every day is not everyday. I like that…
Loved this post. John Maxwell always says that “The secret to your success is in your daily agenda.” In his book “Today Matters” I learned the importance of every single day. This post helped rekindle the fire of making the most of today! Thank you!
I will daily discipline myself to do the tasks needed to get me to where i want to go.
This year I made a promise to myself to do yoga every day (plus 11 other ‘habits’ that I want to incorporate into my life. I’m starting each habit on the 1st of each month and piling habit upon habit.) So far I am sticking to my goal. I’m sticking to it by making a conscious effort every day. It’s not always easy (tired, lazy etc), but at the end of the day I like that I can say, yes I did it. And if I haven’t by the time I’m ready for bed, I do a short session. It also helps a lot that I’m blogging about it on http://www.cultivatinghabits.wordpress.com. Definitely helps to keep me accountable.
