a matter of doing it or not

PIA Watss

What I want to say is importance of implementation.
At times when I think of result, which stops me,
I get overwhelmed and can’t start working. So I wrote,
“The important thing is to do it. Just do it. If I keep doing it over time,I can do it well.
It’s not a matter of doing it well or not but a matter of doing it or not. “

1. Do the sentences make sense?

2. ‘it’ is something I have to do or I want to do in general. It doesn’t mean any specific task. So ‘it’ is proper word here?

3. These words are important for me.
So I wrote it and will read it from time to time.
What do you call this type of writing? ‘oath’ seems too big. Personal quote?
Thanks always

    Yes, the sentences look and sound good to me (just add a space after the comma).

    If you wait about a week, you could make it your New Year's resolution -- things you plan to do differently in 2015 compared with 2014. Otherwise, I think some people might call this an affirmation.
