‘Don’t confuse activity with accomplishment.’ John Wooden
Blanket quotes bother me. With billions of people in the world, they are not universally applicable. This is one of them. When you are starting out, when you make the decision to become great, activity is accomplishment. Moving in the direction of greatness is a major accomplishment. It is hard to break away from the river of mediocrity. Don’t let some blanket quote tell you what you are doing is meaningless. Movement matters.
