On not giving up

A recurring theme among people who have a lot more money and influence than I do is relentlessness. New Years Resolutions and changes made in a huff and diets don’t really work because they’re typically short-lived.

A habit that becomes a lifestyle that becomes a part of who you are is what matters, not the flavor of the week. I’m talking to myself when I say: commit to it (insert your own “it”), full-assed, and never give up.
