Five years is a long time to lay the foundation for anything. A life. A business. A promotion. Anything really.
Have a professional career working for one of the most admired companies in the world, standing in front of people and inspiring them to see transformation as a possibility, not as some lofty thing that will never happen.
Writing two hours a day for five years will transformed anyone into a humble servant.
You can not be untouched from daily writing.
