Oh, look, more grit material.
It’s almost like a common theme among people that eventually get to where they want to be.
Go ahead and read through my website’s tag on #grit.
It’s almost endless at this point.
The crux has two parts.
1. Outcomes are hard to determine in advance.
2. Quantity/quality of inputs and time is all you can control, if you think about it.
Grit does not guarantee you anything, of course.
But, if you want to know what I think: Most people give up too soon.
When things don’t go according to plan, do what must be done. And when it doesn’t work out, be persistent. Keep showing up, regardless of the outcome. Opportunities may come and go, but in the end, hard work is all we can measure.
