The fiercest enemy to growth is lack of focus.

If I have a tiny, laser focus, my chances of success at the thing I set my mind to increase exponentially. No one has ever become great by dabbling, unless it was quite accidentally.

It struck me tonight as I reviewed my list of skills to learn that I can’t learn them at once. I must choose one — any one — and go. Better to have learned that one skill than to have become paralyzed at them all and learned none.
