Will Durant's Fun Quote

Happy Tuesday! Short post today as I'm still on vacation.

“The ability of the average man could be doubled if it were demanded, if the situation demanded.” - Will Durant

What a neat quote! Your daily reminder that unless you're Elon Musk, you can work twice as hard. It's unsustainable for long periods of time, and I don't recommend it as a lifestyle, but it can be useful to remember if you're striving towards an individual goal and just need one last sprint to get there.

For me, it's finishing my second book. For you, it might be finally achieving profitability, or learning a second language.

I usually prefer working a 9-5, just 40 hours per week. But if you've been struggling with a goal for a long time, just try put in the work exclusively on that until it's done and see how fast it takes you.

Have a great, productive Tuesday!
