One can only chant the Holy Name constantly if one remembers the glory of the Holy Name. If one remembers that the Holy Name is Krishna and with full faith that the Holy Name can bestow all mercy upon us, only then can one develop the faith that:

So this is really our life…. we have to work on our relationship with the Holy Name. Prabhupada says that one should serve the Holy Name, by serving the Holy Name, the Holy Name will reveal itself.
So serving the Holy Name means chanting, but also working for the glorification of the Holy Name.
