James Clear shows the difference between Have-To and Get-To. The author of the best-selling Atomic Habits shows the flow: Change one word; change your mindset; change your life.
James Clear writes (excerpt):
The key point is that both versions of reality are true. You have to do those things, and you also get to do them. We can find evidence for whatever mind-set we choose.
I think it’s important to remind yourself that the things you do each day are not burdens, they are opportunities. So often, the things we view as work are actually the reward.
Embrace your constraints. Fall in love with boredom. Do the work.
You don’t have to. You get to.
