#203 The Next Brick

Will Smith tells a story about his Father making him and his brother help build a brick wall at his place of work when he was young.

They complained about the seemingly immense task ahead of them and dragged their feet when their Father confronted them.

“There is no wall. There are only bricks. Your only job is to lay this brick perfectly, and then move onto the next one”

The difference between a massive end goal ahead of you and the single task ahead is a matter of perspective.

If the job ahead of you seems insurmountable, just focus on the next brick. If things are going well, lay another brick, if things are hard just lay another brick.

Great advise that has clearly served Will well since.

What is the next brick you need to lay?
