“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” – Warren Buffet
If you want to get things done, you can’t give up on them part of the way through. When we plan, we put together recipes for success. Unfortunately, we often abandon them part way through because the results aren’t what we expect. Entrepreneur, weightlifter and travel photographer James Clear reminds us that you wouldn’t do that with an actual recipe.
“If you took one-tenth the energy you put into complaining and applied it to solving the problem, you’d be surprised by how well things can work out… Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won’t make us happier.” – Randy Pausch
