Doing all you really want to do is hard
It has always been hard. It takes extreme focus, effort and mental discipline. That’s why so few get to do what they really want to do; why so few get what they really want from life. Most won’t go to the extreme. Most won’t push their limits. Most won’t exert the mental toughness it takes for exceptional achievement.
They won’t get up an hour earlier each morning. They won’t take the time to read, to write, to plan and prepare. They won’t pursue the mastery of needed skills. They just wing it.
Too bad. The remarkable life won’t show up by just winging it.
