Mediocrity

“Everyone out there watching, if you’re napping, I’m kicking your ass.”

– Mark Cuban

That quote dovetails nicely with a dilemma I was having last night: I got home from a full day adventuring with my girlfriend. We had go on a ropes course for the day, gotten dinner, and then hung out before I dropped her at her house.

And I still hadn’t done my second meditation for the day. I was dog-tired. I just wanted sleep. And I almost did. But the thought ran through my head;

Do you want to be mediocre or do you want to be exceptional?

Read that carefully and answer it. If you want to be exceptional, you must give up sleep. You must give up food, water, and fun. You must be disciplined and do what you know will bring satisfaction in the long run — it doesn’t matter if you don’t ‘feel like it.’ It is something you do irrespective of mood.

Do you want to be mediocre or do you want to be exceptional?
