Steverino: The best leaders play the long game...

Hola my kind and fierce amigo...

A fact of life:

Most people quit too soon.

Stop and think about your own journey...

What would your life look like if you hung in there with yourself (and others) just a bit longer?

How much more could you have achieved, become or learned if you didn't throw in the towel when you did?

I know that looking back can be painful, but it's appropriate at times. 

I'm a firm believer in the fact that wishing we'd done something different in the past is wasted energy, but I also believe that revisiting the pain is a healthy dose of wake-the-f-up.

This is your life.

It ain't a dress rehearsal.

Nope.

The most successful people I know play the long game...

They think in terms of decades...

Not just paychecks.

My friend Pete told me a few years back that, 

"Most people overestimate what they can do in a year, and underestimate what they can do in a lifetime."

How true this is my wise amigo...how true?!

What about you?

What type of life do you want to have lived 40 years from now?

What experiences?

How many people do you want to have helped?

I think about this a lot.

Here are a few things on my bucket list:

1. Write at least 5 more books...
2. Set foot on every continent (maybe not Antartica, it's too cold)...
3. Impact 10 million people directly...
4. Build a cabin for family and friends to use...
5. Work more in Asia and Europe...
6. Go to the British Open, World Cup, and Olympics...
7. And, a bunch of other things.

Give yourself permission to dream today...

Take 30 minutes and put pen to paper. 

Your future is worth it...

It really is.

Here's to who you are becoming...
