Because you can. Brain science breakthroughs in the last decade or so are overturning our beliefs that the brain can only learn rapidly when we are children. It turns out that the lifestyle of a typical adult causes major atrophy to the brain. Literally, the brain of a 40 year old can learn as fast as the brain of a 4 years–given similar conditions. (I ‘ll write more posts on that later.) So, it’s really possible to become the best in the world at almost anything you want, no matter how old you are.
Because it’s more fun than staying ordinary. It’s not more comfortable, but it’s so much more exciting and–most importantly–satisfying.
Because the world needs you to be great. Great problems will require great solutions. Be one of those great solutions. Live a life that inspires the rest of the world.
Reject ordinary. Take the path less traveled, put in the work, and become exceptional.
