The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

I cannot do a lot.

My personal growth goals for 2016 take up space. This leaves me with time for 1 job and 1 community outside of that. In order to find success in the goals I set forth for myself tenacious focus and discipline on this is a must.

I’ve said no a lot this year, but reading The Disciplined Pursuit of Less reminds me that I haven’t said no, enough. Success brings opportunity. The pursuit of more can take the eye off the ball.

In his own words, my friend Sukhi reminded me this weekend that we’re not here to meet status quo, instead we’re here to be the example. To be the headline.

Achievement means focus, patience and discipline.

I’ve written about in the past. Thanks to failure, the message is setting in.
