The Dip

Today I read The Dip: A little book that tells you when to quit (and when to stick) bySeth Godin - it absolutely blew my mind over and over. If you are trying to accomplish anything at all and are losing steam - read it. It will probably blow a hole in your head too. Here's what's on the second to last page of the book:
All our successes are the same. All our failures, too.
We succeed when we do something remarkable.
We fail when we give up too soon.
We succeed when we are the best in the world at what we do.
We fail when we get distracted by tasks we don't have the guts to quit.
