No Easy Path to Extraordinary

No Easy Path to Extraordinary

You contemplate on a decision to wake up earlier to work out before going to office. You consider starting your own business. You plan to take a course after work. They all sound risky, yes?

  • “What if I can't maintain my morning workout forever? All my sacrifice to wake up earlier will be wasted.”
  • “What if my business doesn't earn any revenue? I will have lost all my hard work.”
  • “What if the course doesn't increase my chance of promotion? I will have squandered my free time after work.”

If you fear putting up too much effort, don't expect to produce extraordinary results.
