“Tentative efforts lead to tentative outcomes. Therefore, give yourself fully to your endeavors. Decide to construct your character through excellent actions and determine to pay the price of a worthy goal. The trials you encounter will introduce you to your strengths. Remain steadfast…and one day you will build something that endures: something worthy of your potential.”
- One of most important habits to cultivate is a strong work ethic.
- Time and dedicated effort make it more fulfilling.
- There’s a saying: “How you do one thing is how you do everything.”
- Often, trying to take shortcuts, we’re often wasting more time going back to fix what wasn’t done well, than if we’d just done it right in the first place.
- Sometimes, best shortcut is to do good work.
- And if you’re going to put effort into something, why half ass your way through it? That’s wasted time.
- If we’re always looking for the easy way, then we may miss out on a more difficult path that has a greater reward.
- Hard work makes us to get stronger.
- We’ll never climb a great mountain if we’re only climbing hills.
- If you’re running a marathon, and you take shortcut and make it to the finish line, then you really didn’t run a marathon.
- Getting to the finish line and completing the race are two different things.
- While it’s great to get to the end, how we got there is more important than getting there.
- And why are we always so focused on getting to the end?
- When we get to the end, that means the journey is over.
- It’s the journey, it’s doing the work, it’s the process that’s important.
- If we’re making only tentative efforts, then we never achieve that mastery which allows to excel at something.
- Whether we’re building a business, composing music, or writing a book, or training for a marathon, we should dedicate ourselves to our work.
- And we you achieve that mastery, you’ll be in place where you can create something that endures, something that’s worthy of your potential.
