“If a man works hard, the land will not be lazy.” — Chinese Proverb
Have you been putting in the time it requires for you to succeed? I’m on a flight right now finishing up Outliers and I realize that, if you keep grinding, your success will come. I truly believe that to be true at this point in history more so than ever before. Sure, there are systems in place that oppress people and dumb people down but willpower combined with opportunity lead to success. While I don’t know when the opportunity will come, I do know that I am going to put in the work on the front end so that I’ll be ready when it’s time for my crop to match my work.
Make professional development a priority.
