Volume wins

Volume wins.

I heard this phrase for the first time today. Actually, I read it in an article called 20 Brutal Truths All 20-Somethings Need to Hear.
Whatever you love doing, whatever you want to do most in life, do it every single day. The people who do only what they enjoy when they feel like it aren't the ones who end up being thought leaders. They aren't the ones who achieve true success. To actually become someone influential, and build yourself to be one of the greats, in anything, you have to devote yourself to a daily practice. Volume wins.
Seems like good enough advice to live by. My twenties have already slipped by, but I feel the idea of "volume wins" can be applied at any age. It's never too late to start.

What I do every day that I like
  • Pray
  • Read the news
  • Eat a healthy breakfast
What I do every day that I don't like
  • Watch YouTube
  • Stay up too late
  • Check my phone first thing in the morning
What I'd like to do every day
  • Exercise
  • Read a book
  • Write publicly
  • Study Russian


  1. That's a good way to think about it. I like it. For what it's worth, I've found that checking my phone first thing is a good way to wake me up a bit and get me to stop hitting snooze :) And lucky for me, I typically get bored of it quickly enough that I don't waste too much time on it.

    1. It's funny you should mention your phone helping you to wake up. That is actually something I was thinking about this morning. If I grab it and read the news first thing, I'm up and my mind is alert. Maybe if I plan for it, and give myself enough time to read the news then, it would actually be a great tool!
