If you want to achieve, become a world-class learner. That’s the tweet-sized heart of this blog post. I grew up in a loving home of modest means, and creating a future became a mandate. I don’t chase after success just for the money. My father instilled in me the “work hard” approach to life, and I’ve employed it to address basically all challenges associated with this pursuit.
That ethic has been both a blessing and a curse. Rewards certainly come from the “Git ‘er done!” mandate and the immediate, tangible results of a hard day’s work. But humility comes in seeing how slow my progress has been, precisely because I’ve addressed most challenges with the same strategy: work harder.
