I don’t care if you think yourself a genius or someone special in the world. And I don’t care if you were born with some kind of preternatural gift or talent.
The truth is, no matter what you think you are, or what kind of gift you were born with, your relevance depends on your ability to get stuff done.
This will take hours of maniacal focus to produce work that will sometimes be useless, sometimes be good and at rare occasions, be the stuff of royalty.
I don’t care who you think you are, if you want to stand out on this planet, you have to do more than is required, whatever it is, you think you were born to do.
