Find the action that you would, and could repeat forever.
There are four key terms in the sentence:
Find the action is important because if you already knew what action to do, you would already be productive.
There is productive action out there but it has to be discovered and this requires the willingness and the commitment on your part to find it.
The term 'would' is important because you actually have to want to do the action.
It makes you consider whether
(A) you actually enjoy the action itself, and
(B) whether you're willing to prioritise it.
The term 'could' is important because it makes you consider whether the action is actually possible for you to do.
The term 'forever' is a stress test.
It ensures the action is repeatable for, and compatible with, the rest of your life.
The key to long-term productivity is consistency. And the key to consistency is to find the action you would, and could, repeat forever.
Productivity is like movement and if you pass all four stages, you've successfully created a step that you can take each day and if you take a step towards your goal each day, you'll inevitably reach it.
