It takes a long time and focused effort to become an “overnight” success. Imagine being a 20-year-old whose primary focus was to peak at 60? How would such a mindset change your decisions?

But consider focusing on the “long game”, the steady, patient pursuit of awesomeness over the long arc of a life worth talking about.
