Always Improve, Always Advance

There are only two kinds of people in the world:

Best Effort people are satisfied with the status quo; when they fail, they console themselves by saying “I did my best.”

Get Things Done people are absolutely committed to reaching their goals.

With enough determination and effort—by being a Get Things Done person—you can achieve anything.

Real professionals in any field—whether in sports, the arts, science, business or anything else—only reach the top because they have the self-discipline to develop and improve themselves continuously.

Only by consistently working many times harder than our competitors can we consistently win.
