Why letting down is not an option…

 

I get asked all the time why I push so hard all the time.
I work when I am sick.  I work when I am pissed.  I work when I have worked enough.

So why not let down?

Why not slow down the pace?

Because I am inspired by who I want to be…  Because I am impatient with my own progress…   Because I want to be more than I am right now…

And more importantly, I don’t want to lose my edge

I don’t think I am alone either.  I read this quote from Chris Brogan and it really put a framework around my thinking about always driving hard toward a goal.

The tides of life can either pull your dreams away from you or push you faster toward them.  It’s a struggle! But letting down means you let go of your dreams.  And for me, that’s just not an option I want to consider.

  1. I've been following your blog for a long time now and although I don't agree with everything you write I do respect how you haven't lost your edge yet. You have chased your goals with tenacity and passion. I've seen many disagree and nit-pick and it never gets you down. You don't seem to posess any insecurity although you say you do. Keep chasing that dream and working hard. I look forward to the next blog.
