This is a favorite slide of mine. I found out about the slide originally from Patrick Neeman at www.usabilitycounts.com Here's the slide here. If you've ever wanted to do anything -- and it ended up getting hard -- well, that's because doing anything is hard.
It's hard to eat right.
It's hard to work out.
It's hard to come in and do your job effectively every day.
It's hard to put in the work needed for a healthy relationship with friends, family, girlfriends, boyfriends (you know, anyone other than yourself)
Anything worthwhile is hard.
I read a quote in a book, "The Best Damn Sales Book Ever" and it talks about how most people don't want to succeed, they just want to NOT fail.
Wake up this morning and want to succeed.
That puts you in the top ten percent. (because the other ten don't want to do anything).
