I like shortcuts. I’m always looking for the quickest way to get somewhere. “If it’s worth getting there it’s worth getting there fast” is my mantra for driving my car.
But all shortcuts aren’t created equal. There are wise shortcuts and lazy shortcuts.
The wise shortcut gets you there with the minimal time and effort, with no compromise in quality. It’s the standing up from your desk 35 times in a day that is better for you than 15 minutes of cardio workout approach to life.
The lazy shortcut gets your there with minimal time and effort, but the quality is compromised. It’s the missing the last set approach to working out.
One approach is smart, one is lazy; don’t mix the two up.
On Monday I attended the funeral of a good friend of mine from medical school, Andy Greer. He died suddenly while working a shift at Christchurch Hospital. He was 40.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these people who loves failure.
Challenges are a daily phenomenon for the entrepreneur.
Heaven is not wanting to be anywhere else.
That brings out our best.
We’ve all heard the statement, the ends justifies the means.
If you want to do anything extraordinary, it’s likely that you’re going to need to break some rules.
Sometimes, I don’t have anything to add.
