The Intensity of Excellence

October 23rd

Intensity is the price of excellence.

Warren Buffett

Achieving excellence requires a level of effort and focus that is far beyond the norm. It's not just about the hours you put in, but the fervor, the dedication, and the relentless pursuit of knowledge that make the difference.

The path to excellence is often paved with sacrifices. It might mean less leisure time, fewer comfortable routines, and sometimes, a level of stress and pressure others may find unbearable.

However, the reward for such intensity is profound. It's the satisfaction of knowing you've given your all, of reaching a level of competency few can match. The value of excellence, once achieved, is immeasurable. The sense of accomplishment and recognition it brings is incomparable.

So, as investors and as aspirants to excellence in our chosen fields, we must embrace the intensity, the price we willingly pay for the exceptional achievement we seek.
