Ingermanson says that to succeed as a writer (or whatever your dream happens to be) it has to be one of the top three things you spend time on, i. e. it has to be among your top priorities. Hyatt says you have to achieve momentum to succeed in anything. Momentum arises out of divinely assisted intense focus. Combining the two ideas, I come up with:
- We are Called to a task.
- We respond by embracing the Calling with all our heart and commit ourselves to do it, eliminating distractions.
- We persevere until we are finished.
It seems important to add that living and working with passion makes us happy, whether or not we eventually "succeed".
