What we do not know has never increased so quickly....choose focusing over fretting...choose to use Talents.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Alvin Toffler predicted it. Now, we're up to our ears in it. 

People are strong when they have talent, opportunity, knowledge, and skills. While the knowledge requirement is growing exponentially, so are the opportunities

People have not changed.

People still have amazing Talents!

People need to focus more....and that takes more work because of the escalation of interruptions. [There's a lot going on out there.]

Good followers want to vent their strengths. And you want to see strength in action...am I right!

Apparently, even the greatest, including the child-prodigy composers, could get all wrapped up in their instruments and their talents at the expense of gaining the specialized knowledge required to excel. [Fortunately, they had mentors.]

Strengths = Talent + Opportunity +Specialized Knowledge + Practised Skills.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

 If you have no definite purpose, no chief aim, no goals - then you have no need of willpower. Of course, your accomplishments will be unpredictable at best and destructive at worst.

 ***

"Persistence involves adherence to a purpose clean through to a goal."

Frank Channing Haddock

'Power of Will', (1910)

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When discipline is absent Talent is dormant, submerged, and wasted.

That's why discipline is a good thing.

Discipline serves a key role when success is in action.
