    Will’s story reminds me of a similar story in ‘Start With Why’ about two people toiling away at brickwork. One hates his job laying bricks while the other loves his job because he doesn’t see it as laying bricks, he is building a cathedral. Like Will and his brother, we need to focus on doing the little things well but also, like the second brick layer, we find motivation to do well in knowing the purpose, the ‘why’.

    A couple of great quotes about your 2 key words – energy and consistency:

    “I’ve learned from experience that if you work harder at it, and apply more energy and time to it, and more consistency, you get a better result. It comes from the work.”
-Louis C. K.

    “The secret of success is consistency of purpose.”
-Benjamin Disraeli

    Smile and light bulb moment!
    “Focus” is my word for 2017… I am striving to focus my time, thoughts and energy to my family/friends and students. Focus on every individual in my life, every need to answer and every opportunity to grow… is where I am headed. Persistence I have, and inspiration like this article is what I need! Thank you!

    It is an extraordinary quote! No matter how difficult the challenge is, better opportunities appear as we focus with interest and “ganas”.
