Becoming excellent is too much trouble

Vanity license plate
The world moves forward thanks to overachievers.

 

Blogging is way over rated. So is running. And prayer too, while we’re at it. And anything else that the experts tout is good for us.

You know why?

Because most people’s efforts are half-hearted at best.

Walt Disney’s professional life was a life that was incredibly “all in”.

Please don’t misunderstand, most of us start out all fired up. It’s just this whole notion of dedicating our lives to it. That’s the trouble with becoming excellent, it takes so much freakin’ effort.

Which comes first, the proliferation or the determination?

Seth Godin shared his 5,000th blog post yesterday.

Highly unlikely prolific bloggers start out thinking proliferation.

Most bloggers’ focus is short term.

Apparently not Seth – 3,650 days (10 years) to reach his incredible milestone.

Congratulations Seth. Inspiring.

Remarkable.

That’s really what the essence of, “there’s no such thing as an overnight success” means.

Similar in a different sort of way

George Washington

Similar in a different sort of way, a thought from George Washington that is part of the hope at Mid Life Celebration. That you would come to trust this place for reassurance that the long way is the short cut:

“Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.” – George Washington
