If you want extraordinary results or lead an extraordinary life, you must be willing to do the extraordinary.

Not superhuman things. Ordinary things actually. Things that anyone can do if they have the will. Things like…

-being disciplined

-being focused

-practicing when you don’t feel like it

-saying no (a lot)

-being generous

-being honest

-striving for excellence

-honoring your word

-taking risks/not being afraid to fail

-being organized

-setting and meeting deadlines

-being willing to lead

-trying to solve hard problems

-being vulnerable

-staying open-minded

-being willing to learn new things

-having empathy

And many other ordinary, human things.

What will make you extraordinary is…

Can you sustain? Can you do some or all of these ordinary things, consistently, over a lifetime?
