1, Saying No is Rare.

The busy fool doesn’t lack effort. But focus.

2, Deep Work Is Rare.

“We check our smartphone 221 times a day.”

“A goldfish attention span is 9 seconds. And as from 2015, a human is 8 seconds.”

3, Patience Is Rare.

Most people don’t ever do their best work because they give up before they have mastered all the skills required to do it. Malcolm Gladwell was right: Talent is the ability to practice.

“You can’t get to wonderful without passing through alright.” Bill Withers

4, Love is Rare.

“ The object of life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting holy shit, what a ride.” Mavis Levrer.

“10,000 HOURS LEARNING TO BE A GRANDMASTER CAN BE A VERY SHORT TIME WHEN YOU LOVE IT. OR AN ETERNITY WHEN YOU DON’T.”

‘Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion.’ Simon Sinek.

5, Ego-less Teams Are Rare.

“Your potential, the absolute best you’re capable of — that’s the metric to measure yourself against…Winning is not enough. People can get lucky and win. People can be assholes and win. Anyone can win. But not everyone is the best possible version of themselves.”

The Ego is the Enemy. Ryan Holiday. (Which is a must read)

6, Purpose Is Rare.

7, Big Wins are Rare.
