In Life There Aren’t Any Shortcuts

You don’t become a great photographer like Tom Kilpatrick overnight. I bet that Steve Berger, an old buddy of mine from São Paulo Brazil, hit over one million golf balls (maybe more) before he became a golf professional. Tyrone knows how to lead but he spent many years in the army perfecting his leadership style before managing civilian media teams.

In life there aren’t any shortcuts. Great things just take time. You risk gambling the quality of your work and/or perhaps your reputation by taking shortcuts. Trying to accelerate your success is a dangerous game to play, it seems.

I bet that most of you don’t know these — CrunchPad, Apple Newton, Clinkle,.. They were ahead of their time but unfortunately, they were also premature on the market which resulted in their inability to gain a critical mass of supporters.

I suspect that some of you own an iPad not a CrunchPad but hey… Apple excellence wasn’t built overnight, right?

In order to achieve something great, we must work our butt off, e.g., practice your craft or talent overtime accepting the reality that greatness won’t happen overnight. No wonder why it usually takes a business between 3-5 years of hard and intense work in order to make the business profitable.

There is no other way, ladies and gents.
