My wife, Rebecca,  pointed out an important life lesson from our kids. It started out when we were at a low point for sleep in our toddler’s life. Rebecca let Grace take a long nap one day. Like, scary long. And I was afraid. “Honey, do you think it’s wise to let her sleep so long during the day? I mean, are we going to wind up regretting it in a few hours?”

And Rebecca said these fateful words: “I don’t know. I think, sometimes, sleep begets sleep.” We started to pay attention, and it certainly seems to be true in our kids lives.

I’m seeing a similar principle at work as I am reordering things and working on focus. Completed work begets more completed work. Delivery begets delivery.

The more I accomplish my goals, the more likely I am to continue to accomplish my goals.

Work begets work.
