A little sweat equity - Evolved Mommy

A little sweat equity
Stephanie McCratic

Yesterday I was all gooey and excited and posted “I have an idea!”

By 10pm last night when I couldn’t even hold a conversation with my husband because my brain was just completely done for the day, I remembered this quote…

Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.

But for me, the reality is more like this…

Success is 1% inspiration, 98% perspiration,  and 2% attention to detail. - Success is 1% inspiration, 98% perspiration,  and 2% attention to detail.  Phils-osophy

Every single day is the opportunity to grow and stretch. Today I got up and went to the gym first, which is waaaaaaay outside my comfort zone, and I feel like I can take on the world. Check back with me around noon. You may find a totally different situation. And that’s okay.

If you have an idea I want you to know that you are completely capable of pursuing it. Genius is not all about a high IQ (even though I’m sure yours is impressive) or the ability to write algorithms in your sleep or even the depth / strength of your current network.

Success is having the drive and the guts to chase down your dreams.

So what’s your next step today?

  1. Another quote I like is from “Lean In” about a sign found at facebook’s HQ:

    Done, not perfection.

    Go gettum’ Stephanie!

  2. It’s so easy to get caught up in the all the little things that I’m not sure about or let those little fears of the what if’s take over…. this is really motivating, Stephanie.
