Do you ever feel pulled in too many directions? Sometimes I wish I had just one passion to focus on and give 100% towards accomplishing full success. I guess life does not usually work that way. I have too many ideas but not enough hours in the day to accomplish them. Oh well. Such is life. I guess Malcolm Gladwell had a point in his book Tipping Point. The people who were successful and did something amazing had over 10,000 hours of dedicated and uninterrupted time and energy to practice and achieve greatness in their skill or craft. Must be nice….!
