“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”
Marcus’ quote is startling.
It gives us direction, without telling us what to do.
That we already know how to be great.
And by it’s power and timelessness, it’s clear that he’s right.
Greatness is not a tactic or hack.
It’s in the perennial fundamentals for human success.
Sleep Early & Enough, Eat Well, Exercise, Work Hard, and Develop Empathy.
Fundamentals will get you most, if not all, of the way there.
It’s time to call yourself out.
No more acting after reading.
Act now, on what is so painfully obvious but hard to do.
Be great by building on the foundations.
