I’ve seen a multitude of smart people fail in business and scores of modestly intelligent individuals achieve great success. It’s not how brilliant you are or how talented you maybe that determines your success, it’s persistence. Yet many believe they are persisting as a result of the sheer volume of work they complete each day. Tenacious effort only pays off if you focus on driving a few things a mile to completion versus moving dozens of tasks merely an inch.
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” – Calvin Coolidge
