The desire to be great is in all of us in some form. Good things happen when we acknowledge that. Even better things happen when we couple it with acceptance of finiteness.
Some humans before us were great, and now it’s our turn. Soon the pressure will be on the humans that come after us.
Anybody that tells you they don’t want to be great at some point at something, is not seeing the bigger picture. They aren’t seeing how little time they have, how little time you have.
The value of time increases exponentially for everyone. It starts out slow, painfully even. Remember the checkout line when you were a little kid? Or waiting for popcorn to pop in the microwave? It took forever, and we couldn’t wait to be on to the next thing.
Now, we set relationship/personal/business goals for 2019, July, This week, Friday, and the time races away from us.
So, let the desire to be great ultimately lead you to the realization that there’s too much stuff in our calendars, too much noise.
Life/time are slowed by cutting things out, not adding to.
