Let me start this by noting that I realize at this point in my life and career, I’m lucky to be able to have some freedoms and control of my schedule that many do not. However, with that in mind, I believe there are things here that can fit into nearly every life and schedule, and that have lasting benefits.
I’m asked with a fair amount of frequency of my mildly successfully life thus far, “How did you get to where you are? What did you do to be successful?”
To which I normally reply something along the lines of, “A lot of hard work and a good deal of luck.”
Both of those are true; I work hard and I’ve had some good luck with being in the right place at the right time. But today, I think I may have a different answer.
