Meir Ezra - Roman general Julius Caesar liked to land his ships on enemy territory, unload his troops and then burn the ships.
He eliminated all means of retreat. His army had no choice but to win, which they did.
You have the power to choose excuses or solutions. If you prefer excuses, you have low production and stress. If you persist until you achieve your goals, you win the supreme test.
"THE SUPREME TEST OF A PERSON IS HIS ABILITY TO MAKE THINGS GO RIGHT."
"This, of course, is a rather savage and brutal datum for it thrusts aside all justification, reasonableness, excuses and even does not take into account the size or obstacles of the opposition."
"People who explain how wrong it is all going and who have reasons why and WHO AREN'T PUTTING IT RIGHT are the real crazy people in the universe. The only ones crazier than they are, are the ones who are quite happy to have everything fail and go wrong with no protest from them. And the only ones even worse are those who work endlessly to make things go wrong and prevent anything from going right and oppose all efforts instinctively.
"Fortunately, there are a few around who DO make things go right in spite of everything and anyone." -- L. Ron Hubbard
