If you are going to do something, you might as well do it as best you can. No sense in just dabbling. Decades from now you will remember the few things you did with sincerity and rigor, not the many things you half-tried to do.
In this day and age it seems like people want to do more and more things, but want to dedicate less time and effort and focus on any given thing. Books are getting shorter. Short blog posts are replacing strong editorial and journalistic content. Tweets are replacing e-mails. Intense 20 minute get-fit-quick workouts are replacing leisurely and relaxing walks or runs or bike rides.Fast food is replacing sit-down dinners at home.
I think there is a shortage of people willing to take on a few (or maybe just one) task and do it well. Write a book. Run a marathon. Cook a 5-course meal from scratch. Focus on one business idea vs a dozen possibilities.
The power of focus and dedication to a single thing is incredibly under-valued right now. If I were an investor, I’d be buying.
