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…
-practicing when you don’t feel like it
-saying no (a lot)
-striving for excellence
-honoring your word
-taking risks/not being afraid to fail
-setting and meeting deadlines
-being willing to lead
-trying to solve hard problems
-being willing to learn new things
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?
