“The hallmark of excellence, the test of greatness, is consistency.”
– Jim Tressel, football coach, author and educator
The pursuit of excellence is no accident. Greatness has never been achieved by anyone overnight. Explore the lives of people who demonstrate brilliance in their fields, and what you will find is people who passionately and committedly make consistent efforts towards their goals.
Every great journey begins with the first step, but we only arrive at our destinations by taking the next, and the next, and the next … you get the idea.
Read an autobiography of someone you admire and see what it took for them to succeed. Google your favorite business leader, athlete or performer to discover how they got where they are today.
Where could you be even more consistent in your effort to more quickly and completely realize your priority goals?
