How I Quit Burnout issue #17 (Get it in your inbox next Tuesday)
When I was working crazy hours, I was doing so because I thought that was the tested and proven path to success. I thought that to have maximum impact the journey there had to be really long & difficult.

Determination is important and will get you far. But defining determination as the pursuit of the most difficult path is senseless.
