Sometimes you just have to put your head down and get work done!

“Intensity is the price of excellence”
Be the hardest worker in the room.
Nothing amazing was ever created with mediocre effort. What we see from the greats on TV can be misleading. Their work seems so effortless, so, natural. There is so much beyond that surface.
And it’s simple, old-fashioned, hard work.
What Warren Buffet is offering to us is a reminder that there is no substitute for an unrelenting focus of effort. He chose the word “price” for a specific reason. Because there is sacrifice. In anything great in life, there is sacrifice. The question is, how much are we willing to sacrifice. How hard as we willing to work. How great is our intensity going to be?
If we truly want to be excellent, to be great, we need to cultivate that intensity. To harness, and run away with it. To value it as the most important aspect towards reaching our dreams.
This intensity, this energy and effort, will bring us a magnification level far beyond any amount of “natural” talent or circumstances will ever bring. We just need to bring it.
