The field is level, the professional understands, only in heaven.
~ Steven Pressfield, the War of Art
Because I recognize the truth in this, I know what I must do. I must work 2x, 3x, 10x as hard as I have before. To stack the deck in my favor. To overcome the odds. To make sure that if I face 20 objectives, I have at least 21 answers.
Others may waste their time railing about the fact that the field is not level, spending their energy toiling on the field, in order to make it more level. You and I will deploy our energy working on ourselves, in order to make the field irrelevant.
