It’s only human to want a drive-thru breakthrough, a dream in a box, the winning lotto ticket to life. Yet, I posit instant success is about as healthy as instant rice (and just as suspicious).

Dreamers are born, but Outlasters are forged 😉 .
I had years of honing this skill. Some of you may not know, but I dropped out of high school twice.
