Sometime your friends and family might even think you have gone overboard.
It is because to be successful, you have to be in the top ten percentile. That means, your actions, most of the time, are only going to be natural to 10% of the population.
Take Tiger Woods for example he run 5 miles every morning, golf a full round then hit 500 balls and then weight training. If he isn’t Tiger Woods people may say this guys is obsessive, a little too much. However, when the guy we are talking about is Tiger Woods then suddenly we think that is normal for him because he is Tiger Woods. My point he has been working this hard, way before he is the Tiger Woods that he is today. That means there was a time Tiger Woods was just a guy who seems to be obsessive and overboard about golf. And most people may think he should slow down and relax a little.
So if 90% of people say, your schedule is fine, you’re not working too hard. You’re not too focused. You’re not doing too much. You may need to evaluate your activities in pursue of your success
Brian Tracy, he said it best. He said you do the eight hours a day just to be okay. To get to the success, you’ve got to do above and beyond the eight hours. What you do between the 9:00 to 5:00, your eight hours of work, that’s just the norm. If you want to get to excellent, you got to go from the 9th to the 10th or even the 12th hour in the day. The first eight hours of the day, that’s just your minimum. That’s what you need to do to survive. To get to excellent, to be successful, it’s in the 9th hour and after.
Imperfect Action is better than No Action
