“Just about everything worth doing is worth doing because it’s important and because the odds are against you. If they weren’t, then anyone could do it, so don’t bother.” —Seth Godin
In our stories, we venerate the heroes who triumph in the face of great odds. But what we don’t always realize is that they’re not heroes because they won. They’re heroes because they tried.
You won’t achieve greatness if you’re the same as everyone else. It takes doing the hard work that no one else will do, because it’s difficult, and because the results are uncertain.
Good. That’s the only work worth doing.
