3-2-1: On focus, persistence, and misfortune
March 19, 2020 | by James Clear
3 IDEAS FROM ME
In a world where information is abundant and easy to access, the real advantage is knowing where to focus.
The most useful form of patience is persistence.
Patience implies waiting for things to improve on their own.
Persistence implies keeping your head down and continuing to work when things take longer than you expect.
Win the moment in front of you right now.
