You Need to Think Infinite

Ben Heim


Let me know if this sounds familiar:

You set a lofty goal, dream of completing it, determine the steps to get there, but for some reason or other you need to stop.

It may be an injury, you may be burnt out, or you may just lose sight of what you’re actually after.

But there’s a way to stay on track, and I want to share it with you.

The Big Picture

I used to dread my daily runs. When I was younger, I never had the best endurance. I was great at soccer but not so good at running around. So, I ran whenever I didn’t have practice.

I hated it and would always stop. My motivation would evaporate and I would be left without progress. This happened on and off again for me.

The problem is that in things like running, creating, or simply making your mark, you can’t start and stop again. Consistency gets you ahead. It’s what gets you the results you long for.

In the moment though, we rarely consider what’s actually at stake. We set a finite goal. To run a certain number of miles. To study for a certain number of hours. To create X number of pieces to publish. But we forget the bigger picture.
