The best at their craft train to become that way. They train hard, smart, often, and well. Maybe you’re fortunate enough to have personally witnessed the depth, intensity, and endurance of training that leads to elite performance. A competitive athlete. An accomplished leader. A skilled artist. A wealthy investor.
If you’ve watched someone train over months and years and become great, then you know the 99% of effort that creates the 1% of performance. Most people only see the 1% and never see the 99%.
This is like your life too. 99% of your life is preparing for 1% of your life. Every moment matters. But the ones shape the course of your life are the 1%. These are your defining moments. The 99% of effort in the rest of your life creates the 1% of performance in your defining moments.
Everything is training for something. Do the work.
