It’s something many strive for. It’s something few ever achieve.
The difference between those who do and those who don’t is relatively simple; great ones do it every day.
Do what you ask?
“It.” As in whatever “it” takes to push them one step closer to their ultimate goal.
They write those 1,000 words. Make those 50 cold calls. Code the latest feature.
Day in, day out the great ones bring it. To them it’s about incremental improvements (kaizen), the little wins; not rewards and recognition.
In other words, “they love the grind.” They recognize the commitment, sacrifice and hardwork necessary to be great.
It’s not easy. It’s not for every one.
But if you find yourself with greatness as your goal, know you can achieve it.
You just have to do it every day.
