Professionals vs Amateurs (The One Skill)

There is one skill that is so valuable that it will make you a standout in any area of life.

It doesn’t matter what you are trying to become better at, if you only do the work when you’re motivated, then you’ll never be consistent enough to become a professional.

The ability to show up every day, stick to the schedule, and do the work — especially when you don’t feel like it — is so valuable that it is literally all you need to become better 99% of the time.

Professionals stick to the schedule, amateurs let life get in the way.

Here’s how to become a pro:

  1. Pick What You Want To Be Good At Purpose is everything. Knowing what you want makes getting it easier

  2. Set A Schedule Plan out your actions. Do not set a schedule based on results, like losing a certain amount of weight in a certain amount of weeks. Instead, schedule your actions that you can always do, like setting a specific work out

  3. Stick to Your Schedule Don’t think about how hard it will be to follow your schedule long term. Start with a week and don’t let yourself get distracted. Having a schedule doesn’t make you professional but following it does

  4. Be Consistent It is vital to keep working on your craft, even when you don’t feel like it. Do not let yourself be pulled off course by the urgencies of life
